'i said yes' find themselves occasionally dispersed and occasionally in the same place, sharing a love of all things musical and some things poetic. The recent discovery of a long-forgotten accordion and several encounters with a tambourine, a glockenspiel, a viola and a melodica have helped 'i said yes' to confront the fact that, perhaps, they aspire to write songs which embody the spirit of indie folk. But then again, perhaps they just play what comes out.
Listeners of XFM Scotland voted ‘i said yes’ ‘band of the week’ back in February 2008, and then Martin Bate chose to feature 'pointless conversation' on XFM’s ‘new music rising’ podcast on the 16th Feb, commenting 'it's not every band who sounds this smart, quirky and catchy.'
