YellowStraps | A new single from the neo-soul artist

Acclaimed by international press as a neo-soul prodigy, singe  YellowStraps  has released new singletnght’ on Decca Records France. It’s the story of a shy man who wants to tell the person he loves how he feels.

Previously he had cast a backward glance at the previous stage of his career with the single ‘MERCI’, released in March in collaboration with Roméo Elvis and Swing, before embarking on a new, primarily anglophone, era with the track ‘headown’. He has continued in that vein with this new, summery single with its captivating rhythm and trademark sensitivity.

The YellowStraps story

YellowStraps were formed in Brussels by brothers Yvan and Alban Murenzi, the duo created modern and affecting neo-soul project which received the support if the Belgian rap scene (Romeo Elvis, Le Motel, L’Or duCommun…) from the start.

The Berlin-based COLORS channel also gave their early support to YellowStraps. For their next release, the duo became a solo project (Alban left, Yvan stayed), intitiating a new era without losing the spirit of the project and continuing to explore a sonic terrain that transcends genres.
