about 'the sound of modesty'
London Singer-songwriter Yvonne Han started creating as ‘The Sound of Modesty’ in 2018. Known for both her candid lyrics and unique take on indie rock, she continuously blends avant-garde and modernist electronic and j-rock elements in her music.
From an early age Yvonne was immersed into the world of classical music, despite despising the pressure.
Her turning point came in 2016 when she started falling in love with the idea of making music, after having formed an indie-rock band with her friends. A year later, and she had started developing her own exclusive songwriting style, influenced strongly by experimental female artists like Mitski, Björk, and electronic pop artists like T.a.T.u and EGOIST.
Initially resembling softer pop like Regina Spektor, she independently released her debut EP ‘Eye, The Cauldron of Morning’ in 2018 under the pseudonym ‘The Sound of Modesty’.
After finally building up the courage to pursue music full time, she followed up with her sophomore project ‘Metamorphosize’ in 2020.
Now studying Music Production at Leeds Conservatoire, Yvonne is finishing off her debut concept album alongside her session band, with its first two singles ‘Stalemate’ and ‘Warm Floors/Cold Bodies’ having been released during lockdown, and the latest instalment, 'As All Things Should Be' having been released on November 6th.
