New Music from Yenkee

Yenkee has just released his latest single ‘Life in 3/4 Time’ on Thursday 15th October.

‘Life In 3/4 Time’ is about moving out of the town where you were born, 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.

Your hometown is like your parent; someone you are tied to indefinitely but inevitably have to re-examine your relationship with as life goes on.

The track was produced between Cooney’s home studio In Cork, Ireland, and his new home in London, influenced by the tones and textures of 70s rock and pop maestros such as Prince, John Martyn, and ABBA.

Yenkee, or Graham Cooney as his teachers called him, began recording and producing his own music at 15. Using minimal equipment purchased with money from busking on the streets of Cork, Ireland, he began crafting his lo-fi bedroom recordings into sincere and soulful indie pop. Using a reel-to-reel tape machine for its gentle hiss, Yenkee’s sound is produced using the tasteful palettes of 60’s and 70’s rock.

Since releasing his first EP, Yenkee has been tipped as one of Nialler 9’s ‘Favourite New Acts’, a ‘One To Watch’ from Hot Press, Ireland’s leading music magazine, and had his track ‘Cannibal Tree’ featured in the soundtrack of the smash BBC drama ‘Normal People’. The future promises many more compelling pop tracks from this Cork native.
