Belgian band YellowStraps returned last year with “Like Magic” announcing their upcoming EP “BLAME” out on April 20th. Now signed to Majestic Casual Records, they shared a second single “Nights Up”.
YellowStraps seem to absorb the best of jazz, neo-soul, hip-hop and even more. Laying out the narrative of a girl who wants more than a friendship, the Murenzi brothers and Dutch co-producer VYNK sculpted “Nights Up” around swirling synths, elegant piano keys and walking bass paving the way for a sensual duet featuring vocals from Australian singer St.South.
There’s a lot of electronic-infused soul music being made right now, but even in a crowded arena of good music, YellowStraps stick out head and shoulders above the rest. It’s soothing and assuaging at once, replete with a warm, seductive air like seeing dust float in the sunlight.
