With acts like The Internet‘s Steve Lacy and Matt Martians gaining recognition for their solo projects, fusing slacker-rock and R&B-trap, Los Angeles has become fertile ground for new singer-songwriters experimenting with the form. Cue Yeek, a producer and writer whose upbeat, guitar-driven jams boast a defiantly funky swagger.
His newest effort, “The Left,” features the insanely talented DUCKWRTH on a blissfully upbeat number that reverts to a baby-making trap breakdown. On the hook, he paints a pretty picture in his head to distract himself from the disillusioned reality of his West Coast lifestyle: “Pacific coast highway’s like a dream/ When your head’s in the clouds,” Yeek serenades, “Southern Cali bitches on the beaches/ Drink for hours.”
A similar sentiment is confessed on “Only In The West,” an equally funky number where Yeek describes his “West Coast Blues.” Listen to both tracks and stay tuned for his forthcoming album dropping April 28.
