Following on from their previous single, Frissons; alternative R&B duo from Belgium, YellowStraps, are back with a brand new single – their new track, Something, featuring fellow Belgians DVTCH NORRIS & blackwave. Comprised of two self-taught brothers, the duo sees Yvan (vocals) and Alban (guitar and beats) carve out their own path and niche on the international music scene, as they blend soul and electronic genres with their warm beats and rich harmonies. Perfect for fans of Tom Misch, Loyle Carner and Daniel Caesar, the pair are headed for big things this year and more incredible new releases.
With Something taken as the second single off of their upcoming project; YellowStraps are currently gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated Yellockdown Project. Having released their debut single, Frissons, off of the record earlier this year; Yellockdown Project is the follow on from the duo’s acclaimed EP from earlier this year, Goldress. Adding to the Yellockdown Project, the band are documenting the creation of the 13-track project over on their YouTube channel where you can witness the whole creative process.
Looking at one of their newest releases, Something; the contrast of delicate keys and guitars with hard-hitting 808’s that we get on this single, results in a bouncy, feel good, melodic track that bridges the gap between different styles. With a mellow and ambient energy; “Something speaks to being emotionally attached to someone, being aware in the moment and also ready to do something about it”.
So keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming release of YellowStraps’ Yellockdown Project; and for all the latest music news from the duo, find them on social media @yellowstraps
