First time on any physical format. George van den Broek aka Yellow Days is a teenager hailing from the town of Haslemere, England. As​ ​he​ ​hit​ ​his​ teens,​ ​George’s​ ​world​ ​was​ ​shifted​ by​ ​experimental,​ ​jazz-influenced​ ​pop​ ​artists​ ​like Thundercat​ ​and​ ​Tame​ ​Impala,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​grunge-y​ ​playfulness​ ​of​ ​Mac​ ​Demarco.​ Though​ ​his​ ​psychedelic,​ ​lo-fi​ ​music​ ​paints​ ​a​ ​vivid ​picture​ ​of​ ​teenage​ ​life,​ ​it does​ ​so​ ​using the​ brushstrokes​ ​of​ ​a​ ​deep​ ​and​ ​heartbreaking​ ​voice​ ​that​ ​could​ ​belong​ ​to​ ​a​ ​man much​ ​older.​ ​With​ ​mournful​ ​cadences​ ​and​ ​ragged,​ ​passionate​ ​extremes,​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​voice​ ​that​ ​colours everything​ ​he​ ​sings​ ​about​ ​with​ ​a​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​weary​ ​nostalgia,​ ​imagining​ ​the​ ​present,​ ​even​ ​as​ ​it happens,​ ​as​ ​the​ ​past. This​ ​release​ ​is the​ ​first​ ​taste​ ​of​ ​what​ ​to​ ​expect​ ​from​ ​a​ ​world-building artist​ ​who​ ​writes,​ ​produces,​ ​and​ ​designs​ ​everything​ ​himself.​ ​Interspersed​ ​with​ ​philosophical quotes​ ​on​ ​creativity​ ​from​ ​John​ ​Cleese,​ ​the​ ​EP’s​ ​kicked-back​ ​songs​ ​weave​ ​their​ ​way​ ​from​ ​a​ ​lazy Sunday​ ​afternoon​ ​jam,​ ​to​ ​missives​ ​that​ ​stare​ ​teenage​ ​loneliness​ ​and​ ​unrequited​ ​love​ ​in​ ​the face. The sound is wavy, loose with echoes galore. The 18 year old sings like a 300 year wizard and sits perfectly next to King Krule and Mac Demarco.
