We’ve Got You Covered: Telephoned and Yeasayer


We’ve covered Telephoned on HEAVE before – the duo of Tommy Bananas (Fool’s Gold) and Maggie Horn (Good Peoples). In case you aren’t “in the know,” Telephoned takes songs, mashes them together and puts their own little twist on them. On this tune, Telephoned takes Yeasayer’s “O.N.E” and Gyptian’s “Hold Yuh” to create something that sounds like something they’d play when you just land in Jamaica for a vacation of a lifetime.

Is it better than the original? Well, probably not. Yeasayer’s “O.N.E” is a little easier to dance to (if that’s your thing), but this version isn’t without it’s charm. It’s definitely a lot shorter than the original. Have a listen to it below, and maybe grab a coconut drink or something.
