For this 2nd mini album, ‘SAY ?’ – Get Out’, the five members of ‘Say Yes’ participated in writing the lyrics, composing, producing and overall, created the whole record by themselves. They are said to have spent sleepless nights in order to create the songs and the first single for this album ‘Get Out’, which was also mixed by them, as well as all the composing and producing resulting in the album being acclaimed by the music critics for its quality sound and beat.

For their single, ‘Get Out’ – Su-bin, the vocalist of the band contributed his piano skills (he’s played for over 20 years), Jun Hyoung who usually plays the djembe, this time took over playing the matching snare and blew the whistle.

  4. CindylovesKpop says:

    I first discovered Say Yes w their second mini album and loved it. Most of their songs are now my ringtones on my phone. I live in the US and I love seeing people’s faces when they realize the lyrics aren’t in English. I’m embarrassed they have to ask what language is that? Then I laugh because most then ask Are you Korean? (I’m blond-haired, blue eyed) Ummmmm….no, don’t think that’s genetically possible. I look forward to your next album, and hope you guys go on tour! I’m planning a trip to Korea, and would definitely time it to see your concert if you have any such plans. Keep up the awesome work, love the unique sound of your band and your songs always bring a smile to my face. You guys rock!
