In my book, mixing up the right amounts of indie, jazz, soul, hip-hop and electronic music plus adding a pinch of lofi vibe is nothing but perfection.
Meet Belgium trio YellowStraps comprised of brothers Alban & Yvan Murenzi and Raph Stark (drums). The band won won the Award of Most Promising Artist at Redbull Elektropedia and "Idle Talk" is pretty good evidence why.
Tonight's sound highlight feature is taken off their latest EP Blame (via Majestic Casual Records). It actually reminds me of so many different bands I've heard before, but I can't even list them. The list is somehow weirdly endless, which makes me think how did those guys manage to fit so many influences in just a few minutes. The track is definitely something to be excited about.
"Idle Talk is about how far a relationship can go wrong until it breaks down altogether. When two people that were in love start becoming strangers."
