YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB releases stunning new single “When the Movie Ends”, taken from her coming-of-age debut EP I Thought I Knew You, Boy Was I Wrong
Under her artist name YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB, French-Cameroonian singer, songwriter, producer and mix engineer Marjorie Bassong produces and records her songs in her bedroom in North London, as well as in her family home in France. Her debut EP I Thought I Knew You, Boy Was I Wrong is an EP inspired by coming-of-age movies she used to watch growing up in Limoges, a university town in west-central France. She envisioned being in a movie and creating a soundtrack for it.
Led by the focus track, “When the Movie Ends”, the self-produced 6-track EP is a collection of vulnerable indie pop songs that sees the introspective artist explore not only herself but also her surrounding world. It’s also a cohesive body of work filled with songs reflecting on learning from past mistakes and learning more about yourself.
Citing John Mayer, The 1975, Valley, SZA and Paramore as major influences for this EP, YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB’s emotionally-driven indie pop songs built over vibrant productions have amassed over a quarter of a million streams on Spotify alone since December 2019.
“The EP is a very personal body of work where I really dive deep into myself in order to find out who I am. It was a very interesting process because I had a chance to do an introspection of myself. I’m putting it all out there for others to see, so I hope they can connect and relate to it.” — YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB.
YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB will be supporting NoSo at her sold out gig at OMEARA next week, before her supporting Erin LeCount next month at Colours Hoxton. Tickets are available here.
