NMM SoundBytes: Eddy Yang Delivers “A New City”

Eddy’s got some twang. Eddy’s got some groove. And on the lead single – “A New City” – from his EP of the same name, Eddy blends indie rock style, alt-country sensibilities, and a dope drum machine beat to create a fresh, stripped down, and raw indie track. Eddy Yang is a one man band – who plays guitar and saxophone, sings, and programs his trusty drum machine to perform at his side.

His new EP displays his sound and style, with the title track leading the way. With sound that seems as much influenced by Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams as it is by Television or Sonic Youth, there’s a decided blend of rock styles that take from Americana, folk, country, New Wave, and beyond. Yet, more than anything, this feels like a kid putting his heart on record for everyone to hear, much like early Bright Eyes with more pop influence and better production.

If the single sells you, you can stream his entire album on Spotify and hear more of what this young singer-songwriter has to offer the world:

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
