Few musicians are able to create expansive and cinematic atmospheres quite like French/Polish artist Yoaan Lemoine aka Woodkid. Having shot to fame with singles ‘Iron’ and Grammy-nominated ‘Run Boy Run’, both of which featured on his exceptional debut album ‘The Golden Age’ from 2013, Woodkid has proven himself as one of the most exciting songwriters, vocalists and music directors of the past decade. This past year, Woodkid’s long-awaited return came with the release of ‘Goliath’, an industrialised electronic cut which showcased his unquestionably powerful instrumentation and distinct vocals.
For COLORS, Woodkid delivers a breathtaking performance of latest single ‘Pale Yellow’, another stunning cut taken from his highly-anticipated sophomore album ‘S16’. Self described as “a song about the shape of chemical addiction and the power of resilience against self-destruction”, ‘Pale Yellow’ is a slow burning ballad soundtracked by eerie electronics and piano chords that serve as the perfect backdrop for Woodkid’s haunting and utterly unique vocals to sweep across. Enjoy the performance (which includes a special appearance from an animated dog) above, and be sure to check out ‘S16’ which is out October 16th.
