Yellow Alex & The Feelings fuse Motown bass lines, psychedelic guitars, and ambient texture to create strange new flavors of classic soul and new age pop. Choreographed live performances take cues from 60's R&B, while yellow spins and coos a pop falsetto. Emotionally charged. Visually arresting. Short enough to fit on a 45.
The son of a Jamaican father and Polish mother, Yellow Alex's influences ar...e eclectic and disparate: the Jimi Hendrix experience, John Frusciante, Brian Eno, Curtis Mayfield, Prince, Gyorgy Ligeti, Nile Rodgers, Madonna, and et cetera.
A native Angelino, Yellow Alex returned to LA in 2007 after leaving Trick & the Heartstrings, a NY punk-funk trio. He developed a new style, which led to the formation of a septet, The Feelings. Longtime friend Daniel Brummel (formerly of Ozma) joined first on bass, and within a few months, included Sergio Flores (Symphonic Circles), Kim Haden (Light FM), Leonard Nimms (Ballerina Black), Brandon Scott (you may recognize him from "Grey's Anatomy" and Toyota commercials) and BRIT (aka "B/HIVE", event promoter for LA art events). Yellow Alex also spends time working as a producer and co-writer for several acts based in LA.
THIS IS DETROIT TRAP POP. Ryan Spencer pens songs with provocative lyrical imagery. These are accounts of intense violence, hopelessness, and drug use— juxtaposed with honest tales of love, a lack thereof, and the pursuit of a reason to live.
Jamaican Queens have a unique way of making the uncomfortable tolerable, and the sexually explicit accessible. Whether you are looking for infectious earworms with which to sing along, or MDMA-induced club bangers to provide the soundtrack for an evening of popper huffing— Jamaican Queens have got your back. This is post-everything pop for people terrified of reality.
Heavily influenced by the southern rap beats of Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane, and Young Jeezy, as well as the experimentation of Brian Eno and Lee Scratch Perry— the outcome is an urgent canvas overlaid with pop hooks that would make David Bowie blush.
This is new. This is different. From a city left behind by the failures of a once great country, this is Jamaican Queens. Welcome.
