hooyoosay: not at all the wrong kind of people!
Date: Jul 20, 2015
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, but eventually leading to an online-stores release.
Then later, when things further developed into an organized mechanism, 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 their releases.
With their latest EP, "The Wrong Kind Of People", hooyoosay deliver four upbeat and essentially poppy tracks, influences however ranging from rock to country and roots.
The overall vibe is feelgood and fun, the word "wrong" being merely ironic, for the message simply is that nothing is wrong, on the contrary, all is absolutely fine.
The title track is the main song, cheerful and happy, abundant with male and female lead vocals and harmonies.
It is followed by "Illusionist at work", a relaxed instrumental, and then further by "The wrong kind of hello", which takes an even more humorous approach to the title track in the form of comedy-rock. The closing track is called "The right kind of friend" and is an uplifting roots-rock country-infused instrumental.
Alex Faulkner reviewed and concluded:
"Overall, this is an excellent E.P. that is joyously free of all commercial considerations and rammed full of musical imagination. If you are bored with the predictable pop of the mainstream, hooyoosay are here to save the day and show you that music is so much more interesting when you veer off the beaten track. Long may they continue."
