Psychedelic Thai global funk and disco
Hailing from Holland’s southernmost city of Maastricht, Yīn Yīn entered the scene back in 2019 with the Thai psychrock influenced album The Rabbit that Hunts Tigers. Sticking to pentatonic scales, the band’s largely instrumental sound – created with a unique set of instruments including vintage synthesizers and a traditional Chinese string instrument; the ‘Guzheng’, – features big jumps between notes with melodies that are easy to love as they draw the listener into unfamiliar oriental territories.
Yīn Yīn’s new album Mount Matsu is the reflection of a chaotic environment of influences slowly coming into focus. Infectious, strangely harmonious and highly energetic. This third album is bound to do well for anyone into psychedelic disco, fat global funk, electronics and tribal experiments.
