Deep Ellum Art Company and At The Helm Presents: Yellow Days

Noted for throaty, yearning vocals that accompany his swimmy indie soul-pop, Yellow Days is
the performance alias of British musician George van den Broek. After some early releases
during his teenage years, he began to gain traction with 2017’s full-length Is Everything Okay in
Your World? Switching locales to Los Angeles, his follow-up, A Day in a Yellow Beat, appeared
in 2020. Two years later, the pandemic-inspired EP trilogy Slow Dance & Romance, Apple Pie,
and Inner Peace was steeped in psychedelic soul.


Born in Manchester, England, and raised in Haselmere, van den Broek’s musical endeavors
began when he got a guitar for Christmas at the age of 11. With influences that include Ray
Charles, Mac DeMarco, and Thundercat, he started releasing stand-alone singles as a teen in
late 2015. His debut EP, Harmless Melodies, arrived in November 2016. Yellow Days continued
to release periodic singles in 2017, some of which appeared on his debut LP, Is Everything
Okay in Your World?, that October. It featured a guest spot by hip-hop artist Rejjie Snow. Early
the next year, “Gap in the Clouds,” from his first EP, reached a broader audience when it
accompanied the trailer for the second season of Donald Glover’s show Atlanta. Yellow Days
followed up in April 2018 with the single “The Way Things Change” and a week’s worth of club
shows in the U.S. that quickly sold out, before continuing the tour in Europe. The musician’s
sophomore effort arrived in 2020: titled A Day in a Yellow Beat, the project was written and
recorded primarily in L.A., with van den Broek sourcing new inspiration from local collaborators.
Yellow Days’ next undertaking was a set of three self-produced EPs released throughout 2022
and consisting of a combined 17 songs. Slow Dance & Romance began the series in April, with
Apple Pie following in July, and Inner Peace closing out the project in September. Conceived
and recorded during the early part of the COVID-19 pandemic, they were said to represent a
catalog of his “mindset in lockdown.” ~ Marcy Donelson
