About Us

Founded by Frédéric L’Épée in 2002, Yang is an instrumental quartet which compositions melt guitar counterpoints, odd time signatures, oriental modes, a powerful rock pulse, all together with a raw sound cleared from a lot of usual effects.
Their 1st CD, "A complex nature" has been precisely recorded in 3 days, saving in this way spontaneity and urgency feeling. It has been released on the American U.S. label Cuneiform records in 2004.
The line-up changed for their 2nd album, "Machines". Frédéric L’Épée and Volodia Brice have been joined by Nico Gomez (Björk, Roy Hargrove, Snow Boy) and Laurent James (Lord of Mushrooms).
That new line-up has marked a turning point in the band’s work. The sound evolved towards a more energetic ‘nu-jazz’ style, with the same raw sound (yet adding a touch of electronic here and there).

The nine compositions of the next album, The Failure of Words, planned for 2015/16, show sometimes ‘jazziest’ harmonies, yet maintaining the group’s highly energetic signature.

Musicians:
Frédéric L’Épée, guitar
Laurent James, guitar
Nico Gomez, bass
Volodia Brice: Drums
