YINYANG BRINGs fun and fierce female energy
BUT is so sweet you'd still take her home to meet your parents
She uses a cocktail of genres bringing together elements of hiphop, rap, electronic and alternative pop. This is the brainchild of Northern Ireland native Lauren Hannan, and was borne out of lockdown v1 in 2020.
The project takes heavily from strong, female influences like Little Simz, Sampa The Great and M.I.A, as well as film references e.g. the wit and shameless gore of Quentin Tarantino which can be heard in the hard-hitting production and jabbingly, playful lyrics.
YINYANG’s tracks also radiate strong Japanese influences that can be seen through the aesthetics and artwork designs.
Her debut track, Black Mamba, received electric success after being picked up by BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Radio 6 Music via the BBC Introducing Uploader. BBC Radio Ulster’s Introducing show, Across The Line, have been supporters of YINYANG since the beginning, advocating and playing Black Mamba regularly on their show alongside interviews. ATL Introducing labelled YINYANG as one of a select few ‘Artists to Watch in 2021’ after making Black Mamba their Best Song in The World in August 2020.
In the pipeline YINYANG will be releasing a heap of music in 2021, and you’ll be sure to see her live as soon as it’s humanly possible.
