Yellow Claw returns with K-pop singer Sorn on their new vocal bass track “Cold Like Snow,” out now on Yellow Claw’s imprint Barong Family. Sorn’s haunting vocals shine in the cinematic opening of the record, which slowly builds into a hard-hitting drop with cascading synths and steadily undulating basslines. The heaviness of Yellow Claw’s signature sound is balanced by the delicate feel of the lyrics, making “Cold Like Snow” so much more than your typical head-banging crowd-pleaser. The new release follows Yellow Claw’s recent “Hey Sensei” with Japanese female rapper SHACHI and $u$hi Girl. Read on for the story behind “Cold Like Snow,” and keep an eye out for more music from the guys coming soon.
“After our first studio session in a hotel in Singapore, we invited Sorn over to Bali to work on the music some more. She came over and brought snacks. It was then, and there we knew we had a true friendship going on.” – Yellow Claw
“This project is very exciting for me because I never imagined I would get the opportunity to work with world-renowned producers/DJs like Jim and Nils. We started off spontaneously recording a demo in a hotel room in Singapore, then I flew over to Bali to finish the song, and before I knew it, we were performing on the main stage at a festival in my hometown in Thailand and then at Marquee Singapore, which was my first club performance. I never thought I’d be able to be a part of such amazing opportunities, and I’ve learned so much working with the guys. I really hope my fans will enjoy this track that myself and the guys made together.” – Sorn
