Yellow Shoots Introduces His Dreamy Track "SIRENS" (Mermaid Version)

Upcoming artist Yellow Shoots encapsulates a similar phenomenon. Founder, vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Greg Matthews uncovers a catchy and cosmic crossroads between progressive rock instrumentation and soulful R&B crooning. As a result, the Philadelphia-born and Brooklyn-based alternative maestro realize a focused, fresh, and fiery style on his 2018 independent full-length debut, everything. Greg formally launched Yellow Shoots with the More Alive EP in 2015 and the 2017 follow-up Stormy Weather. Not only did the artist personally sing and perform guitar, drums, bass, saxophone, and keyboards, but he also wrote and produced. This holistic approach attracted the endorsement of early supporters such as Paste Magazine, Magnetic, and more as Spotify touted the tunes on playlists, including “Fresh Finds” and “New Indie Mix,” to name a few. After years of quietly tinkering, he honed this vision to perfection on the single “everything.” Fusing synth bass and a wavy beat into an ambient trip rounded out by funkified riffing and spacey vocal warbles, it quickly cracked 229K Spotify streams and heralded the forthcoming record. With the release of his newest single "SIRENS" he presents a nostalgic sound that will surely capture your ears. Starting the track with dreamy instrumentation leading onto his sweet and soft vocals he completes the track fully. Explaining the track further it dissects the intense yearning that comes with a long distance love affair paralleling it with the eponymous, direful creatures of Greek mythology. “They’re singing you to shipwreck,” Matthews says of the thoughts and feelings he confronts in the song. “You put yourself in harm’s way because you’re so in love.” To the vocals and production, this track will surely have you dancing. Being just perfect for a late night drive or a day out on the beach. Go stream "SIRENS" and check out his music which is filled with such dreamy tracks.
