Yellow Fang is a Thai indie alt-rock band composed of a trio of talented striking ladies, Pimporn Metchanun (guitar/vocals), Piyamas Muenprasartdee (bass/vocals) and Praewa Chirapravati Na Ayudhya (drums/vocals). Impressively since the band’s formation in 2007, they had earned a modicum of success through an EP, various singles, music videos, gigs, and all this being a self-sufficient band without a label. In 2012, the trio won kudos from the audience and had proven that they know how to make a lasting impression through their immensely enjoyable performance at the Chiba leg of Summer Sonic festival in Japan, kicking off the buzzing crowd with infectious garage-pop, lo-fi tracks.
Yellow Fang’s creative claws have been sharpened with the launch of their recent LP, ‘The Greatest’ last January. The album debuts five tracks mastered by Josh Bonati, who has worked with Wild Nothing and Asobi Seksu, and a collection of singles cut over the years; whisking listeners away on a floating cloud of vibrant harmonics and airy vocals. There’s no doubt Yellow Fang has been cutting their way through the thick fuzz of internet hype this couple of months as the LP demonstrates the scope of Yellow Fang’s musical talent and reflects a wide range of influences from shoegaze to ‘90s alt-rock much like the sound of American indie rock hit, Best Coast.
Yellow Fang’s LP, ‘The Greatest’, is out now and can be purchased on iTunes. Also, do check out some of the band’s stand-out tracks to get you supercharged with excitement!
