Founded by Frédéric L’Épée in 2002 (previously founder of the bands Shylock in the 70's and Philharmonie in the 90's), Yang is an instrumental quartet which compositions melt guitar counterpoints, odd time signatures, New Music with a hint of oriental modes all together with a powerful rock pulse.

 

Their new opus, “The Failure of Words”, is a touchstone in Yang's evolution. This album, unlike the others, aims no more to sound like in live situation but is a musical process itself. The idea behind the project was to express the inability, as human beings, to really communicate with our species, always experiencing conflict, disharmony and delusion. Only art, love, are able to convey our deepest feelings and ideas. Words failed us.
