Tell us a bit about yourself? I came over from Hong Kong a couple years ago. Picked up these cool cats in Brighton and started making some tunes. I personally am influenced by the sounds of the 60's, from The Small Faces to Zappa and everything in between. The rest of the band take influences from a range of stuff like hip hop, funk, jazz and neo soul. We put this all together to make a fusion of all these sounds.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We're sending a message to the people of the modern world. We feel as if our obsession with technology and material things have slowly taken the love and passion away from people. We play what sounds good, but most of all what feels good.

What’s your back-story? We all met not too long ago, coming up on about 2 years. We found each other as I was looking for a bunch of Jazz musicians. Ironically I didn't find any, but I found exactly who we needed to make The Yellow Bellies work.

What are you working on at the moment? We are currently in the process releasing and promoting our second single 'Crazy'. Soon after we will be working on recording our first EP, which will be released in October of 2018.
