Yell for Help - Love Will Keep Us Together

Born on the same day on opposite ends of the country, Mike Pappas (Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Piano & Percussion) and Fann (Vocals, Drums, Guitar) are Yell for Help, an American alternative-pop duo recalling industrial and ambient influences of the past, while putting their own stamp on the future. Introduced by a mutual friend in the summer of 2012, the pair have hated each other ever since, but that hasn’t stopped them from making music.

With classic female/male vocal interplay, Fann’s vocals alternate between sweet purrs and party-starting empowerment, a perfect compliment to Mike’s laid-back, lounge delivery. The lead single “Love Will Keep Us Together” from their self-titled debut EP, is a genre-bending, dance-floor banger, with a slick, stylish video to match. With industrial shades of How To Destroy Angels, paired with the tough-as-nails pop smarts of MIA, the track is at turns instantly familiar yet staggeringly unique.

“It was one of those times where you have a vision for a song in your head and it comes to fruition,” Mike said, describing the development process. ”The drum patterns, the music, the attitude, the stops, the go’s, the build-ups, the pay offs. They were conceptualized one way or another before recording anything, and that’s pretty special.”

Based in Los Angeles, the EP was recorded in a little studio in Westwood, with additional recording at Fann’s Eagle Rock-home.
