ABOUT YELLOW DAYS ✹

Very few musicians capture the gritty warts ‘n all details of growing up and trying to grasp a sense of self quite like George van den Broek, better known as Yellow Days. “The reason why I make music is to understand myself and the world around me,” sums up the Manchester-raised, Surrey-based musician, whose candid, soul-doused songs have guided a spotlight on him since emerging in 2016. On 2017’s debut EP ‘Harmless Melodies’ and the full-length project ‘Is Everything Okay In Your World?’, we witnessed the first steps in van den Broek’s coming-of-age story. Both works, written and recorded in his garden shed and released via Good Years, vividly document new relationships blooming and old ones fizzing out. At sixteen, George would come home from school and retreat to his self-made home studio. He dropped out of college and flunked his exams. He returns to that same studio to self-teach himself the piano, guitar, bass and the fundamentals of production. “I just want to become a full producer-songwriter; someone who can play everything.” George is in possession of a rich, smoke-stained voice, which lends itself neatly to stripped-down soul or frenzied psych. Outside of Yellow Days, he also makes beats and hip-hop instrumentals, and a 2017 collaboration with Irish rapper Rejjie Snow (‘Lately I’) hints at another future path to head down. “[Hip-hop] is something I really want to delve into the future. It's within my goals.” But while his work transgresses simple categorisation, the feeling within these songs is easier to capture. “I just see music as something that is honest and pure. It's all about feelings and truth and honesty,” he states. He relates to old-school heroes like Ray Charles and Billie Holiday; singers who allow the cracks and imperfections to show through their emotion. And he aligns himself with fellow modern-day self-starters like Mac DeMarco and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, independent forces who’ve perfected their own, untouchable sound. “They're all well-read musicians who have a vision, and that's what music should be about. It's not a vanity project, it's some real shit.” Sincerity lines the seams of van den Broek’s songs, and he’s been rightly praised for his ability to detail struggles with mental health, especially at a time when speaking up is paramount. “I can talk about my feelings ‘til the sun goes down with my friends,” he laughs, but he admits that music, which he describes as a “diary”, is his one true outlet for expression. “I love to just assess my own human condition; why I act a certain way. That debate constantly goes on in my music.”His next project, an album through Columbia Records, is all about “my time right now.” Currently being recorded in fuller studio environments that the, now nineteen year old, van dan Broek has long been aspiring to make music in – with full respect to the shed back home – it’s set to contain the same light versus dark sparring match that defines his finest songs so far. “The whole point of Yellow Days is to be a project about youth,” he states. “It's all about being young and having this overwhelming sense of emotion, this confusion, all heading towards an eventual goal of happiness. “It's all about the hope within.”


ABOUT AMBAR LUCID ✹

After leaving high school a year early to pursue a career in music, Ambar Lucid, a first generation 17-year old Dominican/Mexican-American musician from Little Ferry, New Jersey started paving a lane for herself in the industry. Her mother moved to the US from the Dominican Republic to give her child a better life; often deterred by her surrounding environment to not follow her dream of making it in music, she kept pushing on. At the age of 15, Ambar started writing & producing her own original music with influences of Indie, R&B, Alternative, & soul. Ambar always knew that being a musician was the only thing she'd ever be happy doing and eventually self-taught herself guitar, piano, & the ukulele. Her biggest influences are Pink Floyd, Mon Laferte, The Beatles, Andy Shauf & Sticky Fingers. Ambar has released two singles thus far in 2018 previewing her debut project 'Dreaming Lucid' coming at the top of 2019.
