A dozen years back Atlanta indie rockers Y-O-U played a less-than-serious set of ’70s-’80s lite rock. Well, regardless of whether it’s resurgent or undying, turns out that folks have a sincere love of the soft stuff, and Yacht Rock Revue was born.
Flash forward to 2019, where the seven-piece’s reputation has earned them performances alongside yacht legends, like key members of Player, Toto, Wings, Chicago, and more. But as we enter a new decade, YRR themselves enter another phase. Yacht Rock Revue’s just announced their first LP of original compositions, HOT DADS in TIGHT JEANS, out February 21st, and among it’s ten new tracks, HOT DADS will dock comfortably in retro rock harbor before YRR joins us in May at Emo’s. And to break out the tanning lotion early, enjoy a just-released Jamie Lidell remix of one of the album’s lead singles, “Step”!
