London Yank Rock!


Say Yes, Do Nothing are an Americana-Punk band renowned for energetic gigs that leave fans sweaty and happy. Poetic lyrics tell of life homeless and boozy heartbreak.

Lead singer Dave writes songs between aid missions in war zones. Lead guitarist and singer Dan is a teacher for urban minds. Drummer Matty and bassist Jake are music producers.

The band also keeps busy with a podcast, ‘Shots From Across the Pond’ on Eardrum Buzz Radio. They make their own band t-shirts, too!

SYDN's latest single, ‘Play For Keeps’, tells the story of a Ukrainian musician saying goodnight, and goodbye, to his daughter before leaving his guitar to go fight. The charity single benefits musicians in Ukraine in collaboration with K-Dragon/Special Edition Records.

Previous singles include ‘Hit the Top’, which rasps ‘you know you won’t break ground until you’re buried, and everything you’ll ever have will be temporary’. ‘By the River’ is a heavy blues stomp that ‘throws you back to the golden 70’s’ (Rock Era Magazine).

Say Yes, Do Nothing are polishing off a new EP for release in 2024.
