YALI BLANK releases new visual for “BLACK SKIES”
YALI (Yael Blankstein) is a 24 year old singer-songwriter, pianist and producer from Israel. After releasing her single Keep Me Sane in September, YALI reveals the second single from her debut EP ‘Why Do Flowers Mean Love?’, set for release on 29 November. Black Skies is part of the EP’s musical puzzle about relationships, and the constant search for stability.
The single is accompanied by a full 3D music video directed and edited by David Roubah (Origins of Sound Collective). The clip creates a universe of threatening smoke while YALI is surrounded by her instruments in a world of darkness.
YALI’s 4 track EP is released on 29 November. A curious combination of ethereal melodies, broken beats, and soft vocals, WDFML is all about relationships, and the constant search for stability. Each song reveals another piece of the musical puzzle that is her world.
Yali began writing songs at a young age whilst still learning at a conservatory for classical piano. Soon after, she learned composition, production and sound design. Her experimental style combines influences from classical music, jazz and electro-pop.
In the last two years she has toured worldwide with her debut project ‘Chaos’. The name is fitting because it draws influence from many different genres and cultures, including her Middle Eastern roots, afro-jazz, and hip-hop. YALI performs as a ‘one girl band’ with a varied electronic set-up, which includes keyboards, synthesizers, and effect devices. Her music creates a curious combination of ethereal melodies, broken beats, and soft vocals.
Yali is a childhood bone cancer survivor and draws on her experiences as inspiration. Her energy on stage is in stark contrast to her permanent disability that affects her mobility; her message is one of encouragement to female artists, and a source of inspiration to disabled youth.
