Music by Bergman: Yellow Days

17-year-old Yellow Days is the latest signee to Good Years, the London label that has introduced us to artists like Banks, Lil Silva, and Mick Jenkins. As ever, the label remains unbounded by genre, with Yellow Days bringing a slow-moving, jazz-flecked brand of indie rock, which revolves around his gruff, scratchy vocals and languorous guitar playing.

Inspired by Ray Charles, Howlin’ Wolf, jazz guitarists, and Mac Demarco, Yellow Days is creating his own sound, one that sounds mature beyond his years on “Your Hand Holding Mine.” It may be about his first love, age 14, but the themes are universal. Yellow Days have just release their debut Ep “Harmless melodies”.
