Yeek is back with a new music video and profile courtesy of Noisey. In the interview, the Filipino-American singer discusses his tri-coastal upbringing and the influence OPM compilation CDs had on his sound.

In addition to the interview, he also dropped a new music video exclusively with Noisey. Yeek explains his thought process behind “Freaky (RGB)” as “the first song in a while where I was making music, really, the way I used to make it—for the fun of it.” He continued, “It’s the first song I put out without a label because I had finished the label contract, so I released it independently. It’s a product of me listening to a lot of U.K. garage, drum and bass, and electronic music.”

The music video follows a gamer as she creates a sentient life inside a photorealistic video game. Watch the music video for “Freaky (RGB)” below.

ABOUT YEEK

Born in New Jersey, Yeek spent his first decade living in a large Filipino community. Then he moved to South Florida, where he wasn’t just the new kid in town but one of the only Asian people outside his family. Bonding with kids who wanted to make music, he found a place for himself by joining punk and hardcore bands, and rapping.

His sound is totally contemporary and genre agnostic, but still grounded in what can be done in a bedroom with a microphone and some instruments. The L.A.-based singer-songwriter handled producing, recording, mixing, and mastering by himself. Because his songs are personal and resistant to genre classification, this method suited him. Yeek produced nearly all of the album Valencia, its ten songs are powered by community. He came off his first headlining tour in Europe in 2019 and he decided to recommit to working with the people closest to him. “My priority is putting on the people I’ve grown up with,” Yeek says. “I feel that better art comes from working with family and friends. Otherwise, it’s making art via email.”

The Governors Ball Music celebrated its 10th Anniversary at Citi Field in New York City. The full line up had headliners like Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky, J Balvin, and Post Malone. Two Filipino artists, Dominic Fike and Yeek also took the stage right beside some of the biggest names in music.

The Governors Ball Music Festival is a multi-day music festival that launched in 2011. The festival features an array of genres and styles of music, including rock, electronic, hip-hop, indie, Americana, pop, folk, and more. Aside from from music, the festival features a multitude of popular New York restaurants and food trucks, as well as activities and games.

Dominic Fike peformed on the Barcardi Stage while Yeek took over the Grubhub Stage. Check out some of the photos from the weekend!

Yeek made it to the big stage after releasing 2 albums and 2 EPs. From wanting to work alone to collaborating with other artists, his DIY approach created an evocative, guitar-driven portraits of youthful wandering and wondering. It definitely such a cool moment to see him performing again in front of a live audience.

ABOUT DOMINIC FIKE

Born and raised in Florida, he learned how to play the guitar by the age of 10. He released several tracks through SoundCould and started gaining an audience. Fike then released his debut EP, Don't Forget About Me, Demos. His song "3 Nights" reached the top ten in multiple countries. He later collaborated with the band Brockhampton and singer Halsey.

2020 was a big year for him. Fike released the singles "Chicken Tenders" and "Politics & Violence" then came out with the debut album, What Could Possibly Go Wrong. In the same year, he also headlined for a concert series in Fortnite. NME included Fike on their list of essential new artists for 2020 and he was featured on Paul McCartney's song "The Kiss of Venus" for the album McCartney III Imagined.
