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!

What are your thoughts of this up-and-coming band? Have you got a #WildCardWednesday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or chat to us about it via social media, using the #WildCardWednesday hashtag.

Justin Bieber – ‘Friends’ (with BloodPop®)

Justin Bieber is back with his first new music since his 2015 album, Purpose, and his new single, ‘Friends’, (with BloodPop®) is one heck of a banger!

The track is everything you want from a summery, club banger and it is unashamedly so. The EDM-inspired tune has rocketed straight to Number 2 in the UK charts – just where it deserves to be!

No official music video has been released yet, but the rather cool lyric video can be seen below.


‘Friends’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/friends/id1271990063?i=1271990076



Rod Stewart & DNCE – ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’

Rod Stewart has re-recorded his 1978 hit, ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’ with Joe Jonas– fronted band, DNCE and it’s thrown it straight into the 21st Century, whilst still maintaining its funky feel.

It’s not changed too dramatically, which will keep Rod Stewart‘s fans happy and the addition of DNCE is sure to bring the track to a new audience – a great new rendition and a track I’m loving right now.

No official music video has been released as yet, but you can see the funky lyric video and live performance at 2017’s VMAs, below.

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.

#FeelGoodFriday: Mark Ronson – ‘Uptown Funk’ featuring Bruno Mars

Mark Ronson Banner

This song has been a sensation all over the world and it’s still making it’s mark on the chart today (28 weeks it’s spent there to date!)

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have been collaborating for a while (Ronson produced several of Mars‘ tracks) and this song blew up for the pair, scoring Ronson his first UK and US Number 1 single and album!

The song’s funk and disco vibe set it apart from a lot of other mainstream singles, with clear influences from bands such as Earth, Wind & Fire and Wham!

This song has deserved its success as it’s a quality produced, funk-loving, boogie-fuller marvel! The music video is the perfect visual companion to the song too! The pair must be revelling in their genius for this one!

I still can’t get enough of this song! Are you over this tune yet or still loving it? Please share this across your social media platforms. Share the love 🙂
