Keepaway "Yellow Wings"

A percussive sample loop introduces us to Keepaway and the first song on the band's debut EP, Baby Style. The Brooklyn-based indie trio has penned a sweeping and poignant song with "Yellow Wings"—one that isn't afraid to utilize new technology and sonic approaches in its tried-and-true sound. Reverberated guitar textures meet with snare and tom rolls while the vocals declare, "I think I finally know what I want/I want to be in two places at once." It's a fitting statement for the song's accompanying music video, which features the hilariously low-budget performance of an amateur magician.
