Seventeen-year-old Yellow Days aka George Van den Broek revitalises indie music, sounding both beyond his years and thrillingly contemporary on new song ‘A Little While’. Sang with a warm earthy croon atop intricate drum grooves and 80s-influenced synth work, Yellow Days’ mélange of colourful sounds and reminiscent lyrics evoke a lovelorn yearning that resonates in the core of your emotional being. His lyrics explore the transformation from new love’s unbridled and passionate idealism into the insecurity and pessimism that lies beyond. This track verifies his place as a musical maestro with a raw and honest approach rooted in blues as it plucks at every fibre of your heartstrings.
