about

THE YEARNING are one of the newest groups to sign to Elefant, where we continue to help give new bands a boost, both national and international ones. They were conceived as a studio project led by Britain’s Joe Moore. Many will compare THE YEARNING to bands like THE SCHOOL or CAMERA OBSCURA, and although there are aesthetic overlaps, there are also substantial differences in the way they conceive music and turn it into something very special of their own. Their sound is lighter, maybe closer to Phil Spector’s wall of sound, and they give it a dreamy tone with accentuated innocence, some of their songs giving off the sense of young romance in a way that owes its debt to Irving Berlin and Brian Wilson. With the delicious voice of Maddie Dobie (only 15 years old) and the collaboration of Justyna Halas (vocals), Gordon Campbell (guitar), Mark Kiff (guitar) and Zoe Illes (cello), they are capable of evoking some of the greatest moments of Motown, somewhere between doo-wop, pop-soul and the classic sixties sound.

This makes us proud to present their first release, a 10” Mini-LP entitled “Jukebox Romance” that really shows the best of all the good things THE YEARNING have to offer: innocent, exciting, hyper-melodic songs. This Mini-LP has A-side that stars three songs extolling the wonder of sweet, young love while the B-side is focused on the more bitter aspects of relationships. So, “You Make Loving’ You Easy” preciously and elegantly unfolds all the sweetness of Dusty Springfield or Blossom Dearie. “Baby Be Mine” is closer to the immediacy of THE MARVELETTES, THE PARIS SISTERS or Little Peggy March, with its small echoes of doo-wop. “The Way You Love Me” closes the “positive” trilogy with a folkier tone, but with the special charm of Skeeter Davis, Sandy Posey, and Jackie DeShannon. “Boy Racer” opens the round of sad stories with a melancholy-laden air and marvelous arrangements in the tradition of the best of THE RONETTES. “Kiss You in The Summertime” accentuates the jazz and lounge tones with BEACH BOY-styled harmonies. “Don’t Call Me Baby” brings things to a climatic close with its overwhelming, hyper-addictive, catchy chorus.

So we are celebrating this amazing introduction of one of our newest bands, who are ready to leave us all broken-hearted but at the same time thrilled with their unforgettable songs. Pay attention to THE YEARNING’s next steps, because their future is beyond promising.

Track Name: You Make Lovin' You Easy
Sometimes it can feel like I’m alone
When you’re not around and I’m on my own

But there is one thing, that’s not so hard to do

Because you, you make lovin’ you easy
When you smile, everything’s alright
Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy
When your arms are holding me tight

Every time you leave, I miss you so
I can’t bear the thought of letting you go

But when you kiss me, my world just seems so simple

Because you, you make lovin’ you easy
When you smile, everything’s alright
Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy
When your arms are holding me tight

You, you make lovin’ you easy
When you smile, everything’s alright, alright
Yes, you, you make lovin’ you easy (easy)
When your arms are holding me tight
Because you, you make lovin’ you easy
Track Name: Baby Be Mine
Baby, won’t you be my baby?
Won’t you come and stay with me?
Baby be mine

Crazy, you drive me crazy
Won’t you come and save me?
Baby be mine.

Cos you’ve been messin’ with my head
And my heart it needs you so
Some things are better left unsaid
But I’ve got to let you know

Wo-oh baby, won’t you be my baby?
Won’t you come and stay with me?
Baby be mine

Crazy, you drive me crazy
Won’t you come and save me?
Baby be mine

Baby, won’t you be my baby?
Won’t you come and stay with me?
Baby be mine
Track Name: The Way You Love Me
It’s not the way you kiss me
It’s not the way you smile
It’s not the way you touch me or hold me for a while
It’s not the way you tell me that forever you’ll be true
It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me like you do

It’s not the way you tempt me
It’s not the way you talk
It’s not the way you look at me or watch me as I walk
It’s not the way you understand the things I’m goin’ through
It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me like you do

It’s not the little things that make me feel so right
It’s not the diamond rings that keep me warm at night

It’s not the way you squeeze me
And cuddle up so tight
It’s not the way you hold my hand to watch the stars at night
It’s not the way your kisses mean my heart is never blue
It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me like you do
It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me like you do
It’s the way you love me baby
It’s the way you love me like you do
Track Name: Boy Racer
There he goes, my baby’s movin’ so fast
God only knows, I hope this love’s gonna last
Cos he’s so fine, when he drives through the night
To kiss my lips, and feel me holding him tight

There he is, hanging out with his friends
I wonder if, he’s talking ‘bout me to them?
And jealous girls, can only watch and see
That he’s my boy, he’s only eyes for me

Now he’s taking me for a ride
He opens the door as I get inside

Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you
Boy Racer – do you want me too?
Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you

When he’s gone, I beg for him to return
His engine’s on, I see the hot tyres burn
He thrills me so, the way he moves through the gears
I wait for him, and round the corner he steers

Now he’s taking me for a ride
He opens the door as I get inside

Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you
Boy Racer – do you want me too?
Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you
Boy Racer – I’ve got a crush on you
Boy Racer – do you want me too?
Boy Racer – I give my heart to you, you, you

Then one night, he never came back
As I waited there, by the side of the track
Then I saw him – he wasn’t alone
And then I realised, I was on my own

Now he’s taken me for a ride
I slam the door and through the window I cried

Boy Racer – I had a crush on you
Boy Racer – did you want me too?
Boy Racer – I gave my heart to you, you, you
Boy Racer – I had a crush on you
Boy Racer – did you want me too?
Boy Racer – I gave my heart to you, you, you
Track Name: Kiss You In The Summertime
As I wait, snow is falling
Every dream, his name I’m calling
The nights they seem so empty since he
Took the boat away

Spring is here, days grow longer
With the sun, my heart gets stronger
A hope that soon we’ll be together
And in my arms he’ll stay

For every September
I always remember
When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime

Still I wait, but now I’m praying
That he’s safe, the skies are greying
I memorise the words he sends me
And in my heart he’ll be

Time goes by, and still he’s missing
Long to feel his lips I’m kissing
I want to see him smile and tell me
Some day he’ll marry me

For every September
I always remember
When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime

For every September
I’ll always remember
When he said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime
He said, Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime
Baby, I’ll kiss you in the summertime
Track Name: Don't Call Me Baby
Where did all the magic go and where were you?
When did all the secrets come and join us in the queue?
Where did all the moments go, all memories?
Where did all the lies come from? They came too easily

Don’t try to hide what we can’t hide
Don’t pull the wool over your eyes

Don’t call me baby
Don’t call me love
Don’t call me darlin’
All that romantic stuff
Don’t say I love you
Don’t even touch
Don’t call me baby
It’s all too much
For me right now

Where did all the pain come from, tore us apart?
When did all the rain come down and cloud your restless heart?

Don’t try to fight what we can’t fight
Don’t look through those rose-tinted eyes

Don’t call me baby
Don’t call me love
Don’t call me darlin’
All that romantic stuff
Don’t say I love you
Don’t even touch
Don’t call me baby
It’s all too much
For me right now

Don’t try to hide what we can’t hide
Don’t pull the wool over your eyes

Don’t call me baby
Don’t call me love
Don’t call me darlin’
All that romantic stuff
Don’t say I love you
Don’t even touch
Don’t call me baby
It’s all too much
For me right now

Don’t call me baby
