hooyoosay released their latest EP entitled Mountain Air, hooyoosay is a music recording project, having a variety of unnamed and frequently changing collaborators and cover many different musical styles. It was this occasional recording jam that gave birth to hooyoosay, a couple of guys playing some cover songs just for the fun of it, and quickly developed into recording sessions that led to online sales.
As some of these guys had their reasons for remaining anonymous, it was decided simply not to credit anyone at all.
Then later, when things further developed into an organized project, this initial coincidence was maintained as a principle: no credits, no live gigs.
So hooyoosay became this peculiar music recording project, having a variety of unnamed and frequently changing collaborators, inevitably displaying a wide diversity in taste and in styles with each release.
hooyoosay just released their latest EP, and here is a our take on the songs:
“Mountain air, mountain air, mountain air….” starting off with the catchy electronic synth, this pure fun track with the upbeat bassline that later on evolves with surprising chord progressions, mountain air is exactly what you need! anyone seen my hiking shoes?
My Lucky Dream Day
An instrumental track with a quirky country feeling to it threw me right away to my childhood, a strange but good feeling of visiting a theme park, running all over from ride to ride… but this track holds more than it seems, from the first listening it’s hard not to notice the great guitar playing… overall “My Lucky Dream Day” is keeping playing in my mind all day long and into my dreams.
Done Our Best
Listing to this track already has a familiar sound to it, it kind of combines the best of the first two tracks sound wise, but don’t be fooled, the fact that hooyoosay already feels comfortable in our ears is not because all their music is the same, the complex harmony of the song is deeply influenced from classic progressive rock tunes with a touch of modern country music.
“She is very complicated…” hard to say if the song is referring to someone specific, or due to the nature of hooyoosay approach to their songs. Again they achieve the ability to create from what at first sounds like simple song to unfold a more sophisticated song arrangement that will force you to go back and listen to it over and over again.
hooyoosay’s music is the perfect example of the greatness in music, you are referred to a new band you never heard before, and you can’t wait to get more!
