Feature: The Anatomy of 'The Comments' with Yeo

Friday, October 5, 2018

Melbourne-based musician and producer Yeo last week shared his new single 'The Comments'. Before he appears at the 2018 Iceland Airwaves Conference, he gives us an insight into what 'The Comments' means to him.

I wrote 'The Comments'... for all my pals who are frustrated by loud and ignorant people, both online and in real life.

The story behind ‘The Comments'... throws a spotlight on a few issues that we're very much in denial about as a country — all with morally obvious solutions.

My favourite lyric is... "I really hope my friends' dreams do come true."

It was made... in my home studio in 2017 after listening to a lot of SZA, but...

My main inspiration for this song... was Lonelyspeck's cover of 'Come And See Me' by PARTYNEXTDOOR.

It sounds best when... you can't get to sleep because you're angry about something and you've got an early start in the morning.
