Yonaka, the Brighton based quartet played a fantastic headline set at the Arts Centre to a sold out audience (it was their first ever sell out gig). I first saw Yonaka supporting The Hunna a couple of months ago and was totally blown away by their originality with lead singer Theresa Jarvis providing a bewitching focus to the band.
Their debut album, Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow was released in early June and is a masterpiece. This band is going to be huge, their first track, Run received such a huge response that it was picked up by Radio 1.
Catch them while you can, you won’t be disappointed.
Support was by TiLLie and The Ninth Wave
