Yung Lean

Yung Lean
Friday The 13th

Spawned from a nomadic upbringing in Vietnam and Belarus with a mother working with foreign relations for the Swedish government and father as poet/writer, Yung Lean seemed destined to seek out ways of finding common ground in new parts of the world.

Still merely 22 years of age, his tale is as unassuming as it is wildly exploratory, a contradictory narrative about a misfit stranger from nowhere who, together with his friends and producers GUD and Yung Sherman, became a worldwide phenomenon almost overnight ­ a protracted and at times grievous metamorphosis from pubertal, post­internet novelty to D.I.Y icon with an extensive, organic influence over anything and everything from off­beat art projects and mainstream culture alike.
