UK-born producer and instrumentalist George van den Broek, better known as Yellow Days, has been creating tunes in his bedroom since he was a teenager. Influenced by the American R&B scene, from Stevie Wonder to Ray Charles, the young artist created a unique sound to call his own. Amassing a total of three albums and four EPs in his career thus far, Yellow Days presents Inner Peace, the final installation of a three-EP series this year, following Apple Pie and Slow Dance & Romance.
Through the course of the EP, Yellow Days’s vocals shine with their uniquely powerful, yet delicate nature. Standout track “When Morning Comes” demonstrates indie vibes at their finest, led by a flanged-out guitar chords and blissfully harmonized vocals. “Life’s Too Short” and “At My House” flex their jam-forward structures with slow, pocketed grooves and riff-centric guitars. From a production perspective, Inner Peace explores everything from string sections to funky bass lines, even satisfying multiple genres.
Yellow Days commented on the development of Inner Peace, saying:
Inner Peace is the account of a modern person growing up in an atheist society that isn’t quick to pass detailed guidance between generations, attempting to grapple with philosophy and to attain a peacefulness. Unexpectedly experiencing feelings of God, the Universe or the divine and finding a pseudo religious faith in love, kindness and some unworldly power.
