Following a triumphant 2019 that saw sold out shows across Ireland, Yenkee, aka Graham Cooney, is back with ‘Lucy’. Recorded and produced in his home, the song finds him perfecting a mix of dream funk and carefully crafted pop music.
Of the song, Cooney says “Lucy is a letter from a father to his future daughter, whom he may never meet. It addresses certain anxieties present in modern society about the environment and the future of our world. I wanted to write something that was unashamedly romantic and honest. I was inspired by early 90’s Hip-Hop records by groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Bell Biv DeVoe and Salt-N-Pepa. There’s something baggy and laconic about those records that was always interesting to me.”
Yenkee plays his first London show on April 2nd, 2020, at The Sebright Arms – and it’s free!
