Yeasayer is a band based in Brooklyn, New York. The band was formed in 2006 and consists of three core members, Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder.
Yeasayer released their second studio album, Odd Blood, in February 2010, featuring more pop music influences than earlier work. The band revealed that the album came out of a massive acid trip in New Zealand.
“Henrietta” is the newest song from Yeasayer, based on Henrietta Lacks, a woman whose cells created the HeLa line – an immortal cell line for medical research. In their new album, Fragrant World, they say that they aimed for a more funky and sci-fi sound; something that would fit in Blade Runner.
