Yonaka – Seize The Power

Brighton-based band Yonakaโ€™s 2019 debut album Donโ€™t Wait โ€˜til Tomorrow was a huge success. It racked up a whopping 58 million streams on Spotify alone. No-one would have blamed them for simply copying the formula for their new material. But they didnโ€™tโ€ฆ

Seize The Power is vocalistย Theresa Jarvis, bassistย Alex Crosby, drummerย Rob Masonย and guitaristย George Werbrouck-Edwardsโ€™ย new single. An anthemic, self-produced song. Right from the start itโ€™s clear this is a powerful and empowering track. It opens with simple drum hits, a sampled choir and Jarvisโ€™s urgent spoken-word. This immediately grabs you by the ears. Elsewhere, we hear slightly transformed vocals, driving hip-hop inspired beats, screaming guitars and lots of synths. Angry and energetic.

Do you know Dutch band De Staat by any chance? Seize The Power sounds like a female-fronted and more electronic-sounding version. Which is great!
