Exciting Brighton outfit Yonaka are playing The Portland in November with tickets available now from here. The tour coincides with the band’s debut EP release, ‘Heavy’ came out on Friday. The EP brims with life and chaos and is filled with a distinctive brand of off-kilter rock.
Formed after meeting at university, YONAKA have released just a handful of tracks thus far – most recently “Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya”. Produced by Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys) and their first output since signing with Asylum/Atlantic [the band released a couple of tracks prior on Phil Taggart’s label, Hometown Records], the track was unveiled in May and received specialist support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Daniel P Carter, Annie Mac and MistaJam, in turn, accumulating over 60 plays on Radio 1 alongside a plethora of editorial support.
Currently working towards their debut album, watch YONAKA cement their name as frontrunners in the burgeoning UK guitar scene.
