The Yellow Dress is a indie-diy-twee-pop group formed in San Francisco, CA in the late fall of 2007, initially springing to life as Mr Stopmotion and the Yellow Dress. Their first three songs were about, respectively, a sad Dogfish Shark's quest for fulfillment, an invasive owl, and the tragic loss of San Francisco's Tatiana the tiger. Though they have moved on to less animal themed tracks, their sense of whimsy is no less healthy. While setting up a show in Oakland, a friend described their sound as Muppetcore. This has stuck. As a four piece, They released their first full length, Watch Out! Watch Out! Down With Dr Gallup! in 2009, followed by (now as a seven piece) Humblebees in 2011. They are here for you.
The Yellow Dress consists of Dan Weiss (Vocals, guitar) Jonathan Moyer (Lead guitar, vocals, bass), Dan Nordheim (guitar, keyboards), Andrew Skewes-Cox (drums), Harmony Marie Corelitz (vocals), Leo Vrana (trumpet), and Jasmine Moser (glockenspiel, vocals). They have been known to also include ukulele, stand up bass, pedal steel guitar, accordian, trumpet noises, banjos, and whistles. They both love you and are IN love with you.
