The guys backed it up the following year with another impressive track ‘Frivolous Life’ written with Jinja Safari frontman Marcus Azon. The song peaked at number five on Hype Machine and was praised by the likes of of Neon Gold, Earmilk and Indie Shuffle.
In August 2013 the pair worked with rising soul artist Jordan Rakei on house jam ‘So Much To Give’. The track was added on Triple J, scoring them tours with Rufus and Midnight Juggernauts – adding to an already impressive list including Neon Indian, MSMR, Electric Guest and The Temper Trap.
French label Partyfine signed the boys in 2014 after founder Yuksek took an instant liking to their brand of pop. The label went on to release YesYou’s second EP ‘Waste Away’ featuring L D R U, Noah Slee and Castlerays with remixes from Goldfields and Nudist.
