Australian Tour DEC 2015/JAN 2016
Swedish rapper and pop-culture icon Yung Lean will venture down to Australia for the first time to join the Beyond the Valley and Origin Festival line-up. Yung Lean will also be playing headline shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Hailing from Stockholm, Yung Leans emergence on the world stage came by way of a number of viral YouTube music videos and SoundCloud posts, grabbing the internet’s attention with his unique sound and aesthetic.
Stream-of-consciousness raps combined with dense, bass-heavy, ambient soundscapes provided by Lean’s collective of producers and artists (the ‘Sad Boys’) permeate the only two releases of his catalogue – 2013’s mixtape ‘Unknown Death 2002’ and 2014’s studio album ‘Unknown Memory’.
A whirlwind of influences ranging from popular American beverages (Arizona Ice Tea) to high-fashion clothing brands (Y-3) add layers to Lean’s public persona and image, spawning a quasi-cult following amongst listeners.
