The track was inspired by the sounds of ABBA, John Martyn and Prince.
Yenkee, or Graham Cooney, was one of our favourite 'Hot for 2020' acts. He's proved himself hotter than ever with his latest offering, 'Life in 3/4 Time'.
The prolific producer and songwriter began recording his own music at age 15, using minimal equipment purchased with money from busking on the streets of Cork. He began crafting his lo-fi bedroom recordings into sincere and soulful indie pop, inspired by artists like Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Pink.
He often uses a reel to reel tape machine for its gentle hiss, and 'Life in 3/4 Time' was produced between Cooney's home studio in Cork, and his new home in London. "Life In 3/4 Time is about moving out of the town where you were born," a statement notes, "and feeling offbeat in the pace of a new, unfamiliar city. It touches on the reasons one may have to leave their loved ones behind in search of a new life, while also discussing the guilt, confusion, and waves of regret that come with that decision."
