"A cauldron of methodical yet deeply moving instrumental rock that combines forlorn piano motifs with gradually intensifying, swirling drones and portentous orchestral swells." writes the Seattle Stranger of the release that initially spurred Yards, Southerly's “Champion of The Noisy Negativists”. Though not entirely instrumental, Yards directs its focus on a wider range of compositional concepts. Creating in one track what could be a dark contrasting club hit to a simplistic conceptual piece based on select subject matter.
Yards was founded as a project to exist outside of conventional musical boundaries. To ease the restrictions inherent with most bands and fully pursue ideas based on each piece being an individual release, unique unto itself. The project identifies more with film as the perfect medium to properly and fully represent an idea versus exclusively creating soundscapes.
Initially launching with a video single, "Kristallnacht", Yards begins to take shape. The projects dark hypnotic sound is often compared to Godspeed You Black Emperor and Swans as well as cues from artists like Mogwai and Rachel's.
