New Artist: YAST (Dream Pop)


A very fake, non existent scientific study was recently done here at BitCandy between Sweden and US to help determine if and why the Swedes are a step ahead of the Americans when it comes to latest new music.

The non existent study showed an overwhelming number of bands are emerging from the chili parts of Europe; one in particular caught our attention.

The Malmö group who go by the name of YAST have been around for about 2 years or so, but surprisingly have only released 3 singles. Their latest, entitled "Stupid," off their debut album, is something all of us can relate to. At first listen, emotions of angst filled inside of me. Oh, how I miss the days when I was young and naive and in love...ugh stupid. You know...with the dreamy melody throughout the track, being naive doesn’t seem all that bad.

You can catch their debut sometime this spring, but until then we recommend you head on over to for more dream pop. And as far as the end results of our study... well, they got lost somewhere in between here and there. Guess we’ll just have to redo the whole thing again, shit!
