Precocious new talent Yellow Days finds love on second release "Gap In The Clouds"

George van den Broek, aka Yellow Days, the 17 year old bedroom producer who wowed us last month with his stark, blues-inspired breakup song "Your Hand In Mine", has hit home again on his new track "Gap In The Clouds".

Less minimalist than "Your Hand In Mine", the inherent warmth of Broek’s vocals permeates the entirety of "Gap In The Clouds". Being lent an added depth by the backdrop of muted synths and drums that slowly roll towards a crescendo, van den Broek explained the inspiration behind the track: ""Gap In The Clouds" is about feeling love and being amazed by somebody when you thought you never would." He continues, "It's like a gasp of fresh air of happiness, almost euphoric account of finding a beautiful person who makes you feel incredible."

If "Your Hand In Mine" was about the emotional fallout of realising you’re on your own, "Gap In The Clouds" represents the moment when that feeling passes and you find somebody new, an optimistic postscript to his melancholy first effort and proof that Yellow Days is as versatile as he is talented.
