YONAKA are a fantastic Brighton-based band who consist of Theresa Jarvis (Vocals), George Edwards (Guitar), Alex Crosby (Bass/Keys) and Robert Mason (Drums). The band refer to themselves as ‘Dark Alt Pop with heavy riffs’ and I couldn’t agree more; their latest track, ‘Bubblegum’ fuses electro-pop vibes with grungy guitars and it’s all topped off with Theresa‘s vocals (which I find have similarities to Charli XCX).

The video has just been released and it really depicts just what YONAKA are all about – it’s visually intriguing and oddly artistic; what more can you expect from a Brighton-grown band eh?!

You must check out this wonderful song and accompanying video – it’s well worth it!

Having recently seen Aquilo perform in Brighton recently (check out our review), I was captivated by one of their most recent singles, ‘You Won’t Know Where You Stand’.

The Lancashire duo (consisting of Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham) have been working tirelessly on writing, recording and touring, all the while, perfecting their blend of electronica and pop songwriting.

This particular track has a dreamy quality to it; perfect for a #MellowMonday song. No official video has been released yet, but as always, we’ll keep you updated.

What are your thoughts of Aquilo? What’s your favourite track by them? Please share your thoughts or own #MellowMonday choices in a comment below, or via our social media. Also, why not follow our #MellowMonday playlist – https://open.spotify.com/user/muzik5peaks/playlist/0ITJhPZVNklCiwpBetvKPG

Elle King – ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’

Elle King is an alternative pop/pop rock/alternative rock singer who burst onto the scene with her debut single, ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’ back in September 2015.

Her song is about past relationships and the music video is rife with innuendo! The song itself received two nominations at the 58th Grammy AwardsBest Rock Performance and Best Rock Song and it’s clear to see why! It’s a massive tune!

Also, Joe Ragosta (from Patent Pending) recently revealed that this is one of his favourite songs right now, in his Skype interview with us, for Muzik Speaks.


‘Ex’s & Oh’s’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/exs-ohs/id941366731?i=941366737



Izzy Bizu – ‘White Tiger’

Izzy Bizu is a new, soulful pop singer from London, UK. To date she has released several singles and she was longlisted on BBC’s Sound Of 2016 list.

She is now gearing up to release her debut album, A Moment Of Madness, in May 2016 and judging by her releases so far, it’s set to be awesome!
