In their second album 00YES (2019, Gandula) 13 Year Cicada, now reconverted into a trio, explore more energetic terrains, less restrained, probably as a consequence of their European tours after their debut album Totem Tongue (2017, Gandula). The first listen of 00YES gives the impression that Zooey, Hotti and Philip advance in a more intuitive, cruder territory, creating a very direct and powerful album. The second listen unveils why we love 13 Year Cicada's music: its organic complexity is unique. Their ability to mix the resources of cult music with experimental's risk, pop's melody, punk's immediacy and dadaistic fun is something rare to find.
