“I’m never going to be the same again”, echoes from the depths of lead vocalist, Yannick Llunga, of Petite Noir. You won’t either; his stirring vocals have a haunting affect. The South African singer/producer is gifted. Honing in on a voice that is so pure and without pretense that it evokes a nostalgia that has been missing from music for a long, long time. His melancholic chords seduce guitar rifts, command the most fervent of bass lines, while dancing around ambient instrumentation. Simplicity of the lyrics paired with a sadness in his tone make for a sound that can not be paralleled. Noir has accomplished at a young age what many musicians cannot in an entire career. An aged wisdom and charm that subtly makes its way to the forefront. And so will he.
