“all cascading harmonies and sparkling sonics.”
“head-turning R&B…complete with deep bass beats and auto-tuned vocals.”

“This isn’t Yellen’s first time going electro…but it’s the first time he’s done it alone, and it’s surprising how effective this approach is for him.”
– The FADER
“‘Tide Teeth’ has a real Drake, Weeknd vibe…It feels like warm bed on a snowy evening.”
– Vulture (“10 Best New Songs of the Week”)
With less than a month away from the release of Ivywild, Night Beds is sharing a lovely new single called “Corner” via Noisey. It follows banger “Me Liquor & God” and melancholic beauty “Tide Teeth,” both of which established Night Beds’ adventurous and stunning new sound. All three singles are available now if you preorder through iTunes here.
Night Beds’ Winston Yellen recalls the spine of the song coming together rather quickly at Nashville’s Club Roar Studios in May 2012.
Ivywild is a truly collaborative effort with a makeshift team of 25 musicians, notably Abe Yellen, younger brother and closest friend. The thread that weaves through all of Yellen’s music and holds it together is his unmistakable voice – plaintive, yearning, soulful, heartbreaking. Yellen’s voice has a unique beauty matched by few of his contemporaries. It is a voice that reveals the qualities of a life spent listening to the greats of jazz and soul and yet sounds so utterly of this moment.
Night Beds will play live in support of Ivywild for the first time on July 31st at a special event in Portland, OR. Tickets and info can be found here. Stay tuned for more live performances to be announced soon. NPR is also sharing “Finished” on their podcast today. Check that out here.
