Showcasing a simplistic yet haunting melody and writhing cymbal screeches that slink into the track, ‘Stalemate’ tells the story of a mother and son ravaged by war, as they spend their final night together stuck in silence.
After being in an alt-indie band, Once A Week Won’t Kill You featuring on drums, Londoner Yvonne started creating as ‘The Sound of Modesty’ in 2018, developing her own exclusive songwriting style, influenced strongly by not only experimental female artists like Mitski and Bjork, but also electronic pop artists like Egoist and T.a.T.u, whilst crossing over with softer pop such as Sleeping At Last and Regina Spektor.
Yvonne went on to independently release her debut EP; Eye, The Cauldron of Morning (2018) which feature her previous soul-stirring single, ’Metamorphosize’, released under Yamcog. Yvonne currently studies songwriting at Leeds College of Music and is currently finishing off her debut album alongside her band for release in 2020.
