Belgian Alt-R&B duo Yellowstraps team up with French rapper Nelick for “Frissions”

Off the back of their EP Goldress, acclaimed Belgian alternative R&B duo YellowStraps continue to inspire despite the lockdown with their latest single “Frissons” featuring French rapper Nelick. Downtempo synths and relaxed baseline serve as the bedrock for their latest R&B-tinged effort. Performed entirely in French, “Frissons” comes to life as a sweet summer-love song. A tale of the complexities of new love between two young adults, which Nelick narrates with the poise befitting of a Yellowstraps cut.

“Frissons” is the first official single of the Yellockdown Project – the brainchild of Yellowstraps. Yvan and Alban challenged themselves to release one track per week, every week, featuring a different artist and written in 24 hours – which the new video shows.
