New Yank Yorkies is a tongue twister as much as it is a double-take phrase to read. This is just the first way that the clever (and Canadian) Yorkies will grab your attention. Once you hear them play, you’ll find an unforgettable sense of nostalgia, raw energy, and rock and roll.
“Bring Back the Love” carries you back to a time of roots and low-key vocal harmonies. You can instantly groove to this song. It’s a track that evokes live shows with friends and strangers alike finding something to cheer on. Though the lyrics have a more melancholy touch — a repeated request for a love that has left — the song itself has an upbeat rhythm that eases some of the hurt.
I could list all of the collaborations and credits that this all-but-Supergroup have under their belts (Bryan Adams, Ian Tyson, and Jann Arden are among the Canadian royalty that the members have worked with), but “Bring Back the Love” stands on its own merit. The New Yank Yorkies are a band to keep up with, and a band to seek out once the live shows return.
