On Friday we will finally get the chance to listen to the highly anticipated debut album from Yonaka. But first, have a listen to the title track, ‘Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow’.

This song is a culmination of the band’s past years’ work from this exciting and fast-growing band. The album, which is released May 31, embodies Yonaka’s unbridled, raucous energy and deeply personal songwriting to produce an incredibly important debut release, brimming with life and chaos.

Following a plethora of acclaim from British media over the past year, ‘Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow’ sees the band’s formidable frontwoman and songwriter, Theresa Jarvis, delve headfirst into hard-hitting subjects, documenting her own experiences with mental health as well as the effect it has had on those close to her, entwined in perfect harmony with tracks that explore the complex emotions of love.

For Jarvis, George Edwards (guitar), Alex Crosby (bass) and Rob Mason (drums) the year is going to get a whole lot better with a string of UK shows and festival dates – which you can see below – to solidify what is a stellar year for the Brighton band. The LP has been entirely self-produced by the band and engineered by bassist Alex – a true testament to the quartet’s steely nature.
