Soaring out of Meanjin/Brisbane and straight into our hearts is rising indie icon Yb. His latest drop was Coffee Shop, the extra smooth summer release that overflows with syrupy, golden goodness. Collaborating with Winston Surfshirt and Fossa Beats on production, Yb’s vocals float through warm balanced layers and orchestral undertones, with smiling hints of brass and sax. ‘Coffee Shop’ is currently nominated for ‘Best Soul/Funk/R&B Category’ at the Queensland Music Awards (QMA’s) and elsewhere Yb. was selected as a winner of The Jungle Giants’ Ads for Artists national Smirnoff Campaign.
In the live arena, Yb. and his band ‘The Gone Candidates’ were hand-picked by triple j unearthed to perform live at THIS THAT festival over the weekend, and he’s previously shared the stage with Jarryd James and blissed out at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. Coming next is a QLD tour supporting San Cisco across March/April, with plenty more to come… watch this space!
