Audio-visual music project from Sweden, Yellow Majesty spoke to Bronwen Kerry about his abstract music, his latest releases and takes us on a journey into his imagination
Based in Sweden, Yellow Majesty is an audio-visual music project comprised of one man: Amir Haj-Bolouri. Amir, being a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, and lyricist, describes the aura of Yellow Majesty as a ‘disembodied playground’ that bleeds his bleach ego and astute fantasy into another.
Drawn from influences within the rock genre, Yellow Majesty’s sonic landscape builds on a textured outfit of haunting melodies, obscure and suggestive lyrics, versatile guitar playing, heavy bass, dark synthesizers, and punchy drumming. The visual landscape of Yellow Majesty incorporates unsettling and symbolic imagery to reinforce the intense sounds and emotive themes of the music.
’Bastards’ is the latest release of Yellow Majesty, consisting of 7 unique, yet interrelated, tracks. The songs project an intense, surreal, and creative snapshot of our contemporary zeitgeist. The songs are dynamic, complex, catchy, and they aim to stimulate your senses through an emotive core. The theme of the entire release explores and highlights thought provoking ideas that are related to the impulsive nature of human desire, formation of habits, the irony of human hypocrisy, and the urgency of unveiling a truth without any unnecessary layers of contradictions.
