YĪN YĪN celebrate release of new album 'The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers' at LGW19; listen to first single 'Pingpxng'
Using South East Asian music from the 60s and 70s as their main inspiration, Dutch psych/funk group YĪN YĪN combines these influences with disco, funk, and electronic music for a blend that they like to call "Thaichedelic". After two remarkable singles released through Bongo Joe Records, they now announce their new album 'The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers', to be released on 18 October 18, and celebrated with a release show at Le Guess Who? 2019 on 9 November. You can now listen to new single 'Pingpxng' from the album below.
YĪN YĪN was founded by Kees Berkers, drummer of Baby Galaxy, and Yves Lennertz, guitarist of Bounty Island: two familiar faces in the Maastricht underground scene. Bringing their individual musical backgrounds and interests to the table, the recording spree resulted in a remarkable set of songs mixing every musical era and genre.
YĪN YĪN will perform at Le Guess Who? 2019 on Saturday, 9 November. Also performing at the festival are a.o. Asha Puthli, Dur-Dur Band, Minyo Crusaders, Lalalar, Arp Frique presents IMPROVISED SUITES FOR ANALOG MACHINES, Doug Hream Blunt, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley & His Sekondi Band, and many more.
