Small town English act Yellow Days does it again with “That Easy,” a lavish track that packs a commanding rhythm, soothing soft pedals and delays, lively bass lines, and the richest sounding vocals in his side of the world.
As a band, Yellow Days has a mesmeric, mollifying psychedelic funk style. In this track, Yellow Days effortlessly showcases their signature sound and it’s obvious that there’s a lot of thought (and brilliance) involved. That Easy is the act’s second release after the track “So Terrified Of Your Own Mind” two weeks ago, following the launch of the alluring debut “Harmless Melodies EP.”
It’s astounding to think that front man George van den Broek is already able to produce splendid compositions during his teens. And in his youth, he has already presented a hypnotic musical arrangement style with Yellow Days. Aside from his distinct overall sound, van den Broek owns one of the most powerfully distinguished, raspy ranged, husky voices the music industry has ever heard, and there’s no exaggeration in that. The track is definitely refreshing, and hearing songs like this emerge from young acts gives a glittering hope for the future of sound.
