  • People often associate the colour yellow with happiness, though Pete Brassett's book Yellowman tells the story of a boy losing his father. Rainy Miller also explores the loss he felt when he first saw his absent biological father in his track "Yellowman." Miller's auto-tuned vocals, along with the heavy press of the piano keys, create a sombre tone, continuing through intensifying heartbeat sounds. Mirroring the erratic feelings of grief, the track ends abruptly. "Yellowman" sees the Preston-based artist digging deeper into his emotional sound.
