Yonaka have a blast at Reading 2018

The Brighton bunch have an ear for a hook and the feel for a groove.

With the wind outside whipping up a slight chill, Brighton’s Yonaka bring the temperature up with some heavy riffs and vicious vocals. Singer Theresa Jarvis and guitarist George Edwards grapple with each other as they howl out vocals and attack their guitars with a vengeance.

Jarvis chucks out Yonaka bandanas mid-set, before the band smash through strutting banger 'Waves'. They aren't short on those bangers this lot, nor attitude. The four-piece eke the most out of an enthusiastic audience, leading singalongs and inviting punters to join in the obvious fun they're having onstage. Blending gnarly guitars and hip hop beats with infectious pop hooks, Yonaka are masters of their own landscape.

With an ear for a hook and the feel for a groove, Yonaka are headed places, and it won't be long before a tent like Reading's Festival Republic won't be able to contain them.
