Rock, whether it be progressive, adventure, pop, garage, acid; do we need lyrics to fully engage ourselves? Up until now I would have said YES, like who doesn’t like some badass rock lyrics? Let’s meet the band that changed my mind….

Covet, based out of Cali is a math/adventure/post rock band, front woman Yvette Young is a classically trained pianist and violinist; Young taught herself guitar as a way to reclaim music for herself on her own terms. Music on her terms is a good thing, a very good thing. Young, a solo artist, joined forces with two other musicians who are talented and like-minded, the trio is known as COVET.

Delicate, hard-hitting, complex and incredibly soothing. It’s like telling a story, without saying a word. As a trio, they are able to wow audiences with their combined technical mastery. I watched, completely amazed as Young’s fingers flew between the bridge and its fretboard, picking and tapping what sounds like multiple guitar parts at once; it’s both impressive and simply good!

July 2018, COVET released their new album Effloresce.
