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!

#FeelGoodFriday: St Lucia – ‘Elevate’

St Lucia Banner

St Lucia (aka Jean-Philip Grobler) is a South-African-born musician based in Brooklyn, New York. The musician takes influences from Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Sting and more.

This song, ‘Elevate’ was released in 2013 and the video is brilliant – Grobler and his band were evicted from their rehearsal space and decided to host one final party on the rooftop and filmed it as the video for their single release.

Whilst Grobler is a solo musician, he uses a live band for performances and has supported the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and remixed tracks for Passion PitFoster The People and Charli XCX.

Sadly, St Lucia have not officially released the single or album in the UK and therefore it can’t be downloaded from iTunes or listened to on Spotify, but it is definitely worth checking out!

Is this song giving you that Friday feeling? Have you heard of St Lucia before? What do you think of this track? Please share this link amongst your social medias.

#Two4Tunesday: Ryn Weaver – ‘The Fool’ & Ella Eyre – ‘Together’

This week’s #Two4Tunesday features two up-and-coming pop lasses, both of whom have a lot to offer the world of pop music and culture!


Ryn Weaver Banner

Ryn Weaver is incredible! Born Erin Michelle Wüthrich, of Argentinian/American decent, she has quickly become an internet success story picking up recognition from Charli XCX and Hayley Williams (Paramore)!

This sensational artist seemed to just emerge out of nowhere with her debut track, OctaHate, going viral. You may remember the original video where there was a little girl as her younger counterpart with some stunning imagery throughout. Sadly, Ms Weaver recently stated that she hated the original video and has since removed it online asnd replaced it with a new version in which she and her best friend have a food fight; it’s such a shame as the original video was one of my all-time favourites!

However, since then, Ryn Weaver has released her follow-up track, The Fool, which is also the title track to her upcoming album. Once again, the video is heavily incorporated with artistic imagery and makes for a really interesting visual accompaniment.

Ryn Weaver, as an artist, truly excites me; she not only produces interesting, unique and quirky pop songs but also visual masterpieces to accompany them, making for a fantastic re-defining of the word ‘artist’ in the music industry. I can’t wait to see what more she has in store for us!


‘The Fool’ is available to download from iTunes right now – please go grab your copy and show support for this incredulous artist – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-fool/id981136094?i=981136101

Ella Eyre Banner

Next is the latest release from Ella Eyre. Ella trained at BRIT School and came to recognition for her collaborations with RudimentalNaughty Boy, Tinie TempahBastille and DJ Fresh but since then has released a string of Top 20 hits, the most recent being ‘Together’.

This particular track has a fresh, summer feel with its calm verses and intense, drum and bass style choruses. This song confirms the incredible talent Ella Eyre has and that she deserves recognition for her talents.


‘Together’ is out now on iTunes, please go and download it – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/together-single/id978502227

#WildCardWednesday: Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox – ‘Fancy’

Scott Bradlee - Banner

Well, where to start with this song; Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox are well-known YouTube stars. They take modern pop songs and put a vintage spin on them. This particular track (originally by Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX) is done in a vintage 1920s flapper style; it truly has made the track more interesting and given it very unique twist. I really hope you enjoy this.

This week’s Wild-Card has been a cover, with a twist. Are you listening to something similar? Please reply with your Wild-Card.
