First, you start with a drum machine. Then, you add a simple indie rock guitar riff. Finally, you layer this with some emo punk vocal stylings. The final product, Eddy Yang, the 2019 version of Conor Oberst in his basement with a 4 track and a few instruments. No, this isn’t saying that Yang sounds like Bright Eyes necessarily. Instead, what resembles the young Oberst is the DIY ethic and the need to make music no matter what may be in the way.
The lead track from the EP – as well as one of the EP’s two singles – is entitled “Split the Night” and it’s a great introduction to what young Eddy Yang is all about. Check him out now so you can tell those aforementioned annoying hipsters than you actually heard about him first.
