Freaky Friday: Yellow Ostrich
Yellow Ostrich singing about whales: a perfect mix for a new Freaky Friday post! Alex Schaaf’s (lead singer) lyrical modes are desperate yet optimistic songs about the future.You can hear his sweet boyish voice on the latest album Strange Land. Yellow Ostrich doesn’t make typical indie-rock fare. For example, multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez plays at least 11 different kinds of horns throughout Strange Land‘s 10 lush, rhythmically compact songs, which often focus on how things are not always better somewhere else.
