Oracular UK folksters, I Said Yes, have returned. Their all-new single, ‘Virginia’, is an earnest love song that builds up its tensities with percolative guitar and textured production. It all leads into a fabulous crescendo, replete with subtle horns, synth, and march-worthy percussion as lead vocalist Kit Buchan commands his delivery. It’s a welcome comeback for the bluesy folk-rockers, who we last had seen several years ago with lovely, sticky tunes like ‘Alexander’ and ‘California’.
