Yellow Days // Hurt In Love
Yellow Days has spent the past year or so spilling jazzy, Mac-DeMarco-beating tunes onto the internet. Now, we get Hurt In Love, and all of those carefree melodies have been sucked out, leaving a vacuum for George van den Broek’s voice and soulful keys to writhe. It’s a pretty stunning statement whichever way you cut it, but it’s even more impressive given his years (at the time of writing, he’s just 18). But those lucky enough to catch a glimpse of him at Corsica Studios in London last month will know that he’s every inch as prodigious as his manager would have you believe; there’s a rare talent on show here, and you can hear it in every second of this lament.
