“Alarid conquered the stage. Yes You Are's set established a throwback radio vibe like some alternative universe Jack FM." - Brian Peterson, The Dallas Observer
"Yes You Are makes unapologetic pop songs. That said, it’s the kind of pop that has multiple dimensions. Taking equally from The Faint and The Weeknd, Yes You Are’s music is as smart as it is sexy. The band’s ability to craft earworm after earworm is something amazing. Everything the band puts out wants to stay stuck in your head for days–the hallmark of a band that will change the music landscape." - Brian Clifton, Mills Record Co.
“Yes You Are crafts tunes that merge a basic pop sensibility with a mystical tone, holding back no amount of showmanship or ability in its thrilling live performances.” - Michelle Bacon, 90.0 The Bridge, Kansas City
"Yes You Are's brand of ethereal rock is a magnetic, encapsulating experience from start to finish. Kianna Alarid and Jared White craft purposeful pop songs surrounded by transcendental swaths of sound. After quickly pronouncing themselves onto the Kansas City scene and becoming a fan favorite, they gained national traction by supporting Neon Trees on their summer 2015 tour." - Deli Magazine
"The five piece makes narratively and musically complex pop music. Taking the production quality that makes the biggest pop songs acoustically perfect and the passion that gives the best indie bands that je ne sais quois aspect that elevates them beyond pure instrumentation, Yes You Are’s music splits the difference between the anthemic and introspective. With the skill to recreate the quality of their recordings on stage, Yes You Are burns through their sets with such a commanding presence that it is hard to watch them without moving one’s own body." - Mills Record Company
