Yelloh is an independent artist based in South West London. I have been following her for a while now, having previously covered her single “Futon,” coming out earlier this year. Now, she releases her new EP titled 1114, a gorgeous guitar-driven project that brings enormous amounts of passion and raw emotion, something that gives me chills.
She played me a few songs before the release, the first one I remember being “He Said, She Said.” The synths and drums throughout this track are just overpowered by her raw and powerful vocal performance that really highlights the extent of her talents as a singer and songwriter. “I Knew” is a beautiful guitar-driven ballad that speaks on love, more specifically about natural break ups and finding solace and growing from that situation. “Walls” is a track that has heavy guitar arpeggios that shine through on this track, and Yelloh’s mellow and soothing vocals just wrap around the instrumental beautifully, creating a warm and emotive sound. “Home” sees her describing where she finds home, and her soft voice is complemented by gorgeous keys and a subtle drums which give this track both a beautiful and eerie tone. It’s a sad and mellow end to this emotive record, but one which gives an insight into Yelloh’s thoughts on where home is and her sometimes conflicted identity as a result of that.
1114 EP comes from a very raw and heartfelt place, and it shows through the chilling vocal performance from the talented singer. The guitar and synth-driven tone to the project makes it dreamy and angelic too. You should definitely support Yelloh because she’s an amazing talent with a a great heart that continues to grow and blossom into a really special artist. Stream her new EP 1114 below.
