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.
