Love Yong Yong


It’s been a crazy journey for Love. Beginning life as a tape on Night School in 2012, Love has now made it to vinyl, and it won’t last long…

Yong Yong are a duo from Lisbon, Portugal comprising Rodolfo Brito & Francisco Silva. Originally released on cassette, Love is their debut release and is now available in an altered, re-worked version for the LP release. A warped excursion into outsider electronics, Love drifts in and out of inner ear consciousness using a multi-technique language which Yong Yong can definitively say is their own. Beginning their recorded career with abstract drone music, Yong Yong have since widened their scope; communicating a slanted perspective of a whole slew of contemporary musics. Samples and degraded electronics, the aesthetics of crumbling form, and pop music turned in on itself are mixed into a vortex which still manages to be underpinned by a melancholic sense of melody. Both experimental and populist, Love is the result of high and low culture smelted down into a miasmic, evocative mercury. A fluid experience where nothing is at seems and that’s how it should be.
