Yes Cadets were formed in Belfast over the summer of 2008, united by an unhealthy obsession with Canadian indie and French electro. A sharp ear for an off-kilter hook meant it was not long before their brand of synth-tinged art-rock was causing a scene on national radio. Their first single ‘Canada’ received widespread airplay on Radio 1, 6music, RTE and Phantom 105, amongst others, earning them a place in the hearts of the Irish music press as “the most exciting new band in the country”. A self titled EP produced shortly afterwards was hailed by Hot Press and AU as one of the years finest releases.

Yes Cadets have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the live circuit, with performances at Oxegen and Glasgowbury and a host of notable support shows, most recently opening for Canadian alt-rock luminaries Sunset Rubdown. Drawing influences from as far afield as Prince, Wolf Parade and Justice, their new single ‘Lies’ (released June 7th) comes at an exciting and optimistic time for the band, who will be touring the UK and Ireland extensively over the summer months.
