Yellow Days- “That Easy”

Yellow Days- That Easy

On the gauzy “That Easy,” 18-year-old Yellow Days attempts to bury his voice under layers of echo effects and reverb and psychedelic squelches but it doesn’t work. The attempt is a complete and utter failure because Yellow Days’ voice is a feral animal on this track. It’s raw and it’s wounded and it’s emotional and it’s struggling to make sense of things. There are parts of the psychedelic soul tune where the English singer is wordlessly howling which cuts through all of the noise to expose an open nerve. He just wants things to go his way and if they don’t, he’ll go down swinging because he “ain’t giving up that easy.” Yellow Days might still be a teenager but he expresses a self-confidence and an emotionality well beyond his years. And a voice. That voice is a few years past 18 too.
