“Blinding Sights (Left Me Cold in the Night)” is off Yellow House's brand new EP, 'A Carnival of Fears', which chronicles the severe juxtaposition of expectation and reality in young adulthood. It is an intimate journey through the first contact with love, alienation, disillusion and politics. Emile van Dango (aka Yellow House) wrote, produced, and performed the album's tracks in his home studio by himself.
Compiled through years of home recording and writing, 'A Carnival of Fears' is an "all scars bared" approach to detailing a young musicians journey from teenage folky, to the fruition of a young man settled firmly in his unique unapologetic vision.
Yellow House is the recording project of Cape Town based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Emile van Dango. After years of venturing through the endless genre waves which flood the Cape Town music scene, yet never quite feeling at home, Emile instead opted to dream up his own unique universe.
Yellow House serves as the embodiment of all that Emile could sink his teeth into during his formative years as a young songwriter and producer. Having spent a couple years honing his craft as a folk musician, Yellow House carves out a broader space, a home of artistic experimentation and endless possibility -- a haven which currently exists as the headquarters for Emile’s new dream-pop/psych-soul visions.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
