On January 19th, YIFY (ee-fee) Zhang, the acclaimed cinematic-electronic singer-songwriter and sound healer, unveiled her latest single ‘This is the Year’. Her latest track invites listeners on a transformative journey, blending anthemic pop vibes with her signature cinematic electronica style. Originating from the lively city of Beijing, YIFY embarked on her musical journey at the young age of 5, initially embracing the violin. Despite a spinal injury altering her trajectory away from live performances, YIFY uncovered a deep love for composing and songwriting. Her musical ventures effortlessly blend electronic film composition, singer-songwriter narratives, and the therapeutic power of sound. Vents Magazine describes YIFY’s sound as a “raw and lush soundscape” that transcends traditional genres.
‘This is the Year’ represents a departure for YIFY from her previous work, embracing a more pop anthemic style while retaining the atmospheric, cinematic, and uplifting qualities that make her work so distinct. The track is an invitation to step into one’s power, embrace personal authenticity, and embark on the journey of self-realization. YIFY’s unique blend of genres and heartfelt storytelling ensures that this anthem will resonate with a diverse audience.
YIFY shares: “Dreams are meant to be realized, and the process begins with a simple declaration that you will try.“
