Primed for an international breakthrough, YONAKA have today announced the release of their EP, Welcome To My House, out 26thMay via LAVA/Republic Records. The 3-piece have also unveiled the entrancing title track, and video which can be seen below:
The track layers airy synths and an unexpectedly danceable bassline above a glitchy beat accented by guitar. Meanwhile, Theresa alternates between soulful intonation and a theatrically climactic chorus with fluttering register as her voice resounds, “Welcome to my house.”
The accompanying visual finds Alex & George in white suits seated in a circle on folding chairs like a support group as Theresa dons a black couture gown. She sings to the camera, leaving every ounce of emotion and truth on the track. Simultaneously, she emerges as a 22nd century rockstar goddess with no shortage of style…
On upcoming EP and new single, lead singer Theresa Jarvis commented: “Each song represents a memory or emotion inside me. The experiences I have gone through have all spent time inside my house and consumed me. With the EP being called Welcome To My House, visually I want listeners to be able to open up a door, come into my world and see what each song meant to me at that specific time in my life.”
The track notably arrives on the heels of the band’s latest release PANIC, which hasracked up over 2 million combined streams, and received several spins on BBC Radio 1 including 5 plays on Clara Amfo’s show!
Up next the band will celebrate the release with numerous live dates this spring including The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Reading & Leeds Festival and more. See full tour dates below.
