On Ecstatic Baby, Yeasayer is able to call bnack to the alternative pop of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Hints of Jesus Jones and Fine Young Cannibals can be heard here. A brilliant falsetto is matched through sci-fi synths and splashy drums. There is a vibrancy to Yeasayer’s latest that will keep listeners focused on the composition. As the band enters the last minute of Ecstatic Baby, the track is able to take a brief deviation before closing things up in a neat and tidy fashion.
