“I love how Yang has this singular energy. He creates his music as if he is alone in the universe, but that’s how the best art begins sometimes.” – Nohoartsdistrict.com
“Yang’s vocal tones come across as loose and wobbly, vulnerable and almost stoic, yet it’s a voice that grows on you, gaining a type of pure expression both refreshing and one-off.”- Tattoo.com
“Eddy Yang operates with a confidence both in his lyrics and the overall execution of his vision. Big, dreamy sounding guitars swing and sway through each of the EP’s five tracks.” – Alternative Nation
Yangs influences range from Kanye West to Beach House and Bruce Springsteen to The Velvet Underground. Although he regards his music as rock he also embarks upon styles and expressions of modern pop. His style is actually all his own and the Asian American direction combined with a rock n roll mythology is spot on.
Eddy wrote, recorded, mixed, and mastered everything on the EP and it demonstrates his versatility, insights and knowledge of what he wants and what the fans love. All vocals, guitar, saxophone, and beat programming are Eddy Yang. Yang fits so nicely in the styles and genres of Indie Rock, Indie, Rock N Roll, and Rock. Yang has been likened to artists such as Television, Chvrches, Bruce Springsteen, Sonic Youth, and Kurt Vile.
“A New City EP was inspired by a trip to NYC, though it was recorded in Los Angeles, my hometown. I remember being inspired and wide-eyed while walking through NYC at night. A New City EP is about the feeling of being young and alive, when the world is still innocent and full of possibilities. It’s also about finding yourself – who you’re meant to be.” ~Eddy Yang~
