Yellow Days - "Hurt In Love"
Yellow Days is an 18-year-old kid from the U.K., but you wouldn’t know it by listening to him sing. His scratchy vocal delivery carries the emotional weight of someone who has been through decades of pain. Basically, it sounds like he's seen some shit and gained a perspective that eludes most teenagers. But somehow, Yellow Days' music feels genuine—in spite of his youth. "Hurt In Love" is one of the finest examples of this yet, as the young singer/producer pours himself out over warm psychedelic guitars and crisp percussion in a heartbreaking way you can feel in your gut. —Eric Skelton
