Yonaka & Gurr co-headline Birmingham show

Brighton quartet Yonaka and Berlin duo Gurr embark on a joint headline tour this spring.

In the space of just one full single, Brighton quartet YONAKA have powered towards nationwide attention. The reaction after they uploaded their first track ‘Run’ to SoundCloud was phenomenal, as it was picked up for Radio 1 airplay without any promotion whatsoever. It was followed with their first full single ‘Ignorance’ which was released on Phil Taggart’s Hometown Records and continued to amplify the growing acclaim that has flowed their way. Shows alongside DrengeKilling Joke and Demob Happy, as well as festivals including Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Truck also helped to spread their gospel.

When two best friends start a band, songs get filled with inside jokes. In My Head takes the listener to a journey of Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee’s friendship, their life, and a step further into the world of GURR. ‘First Wave Gurrlcore’ they call their own genre, always with a slight and acknowledging nod to riot girl culture and yet stressing that they want to invent their own style – they pair straight-forward garage rock tunes with more psychedelic and wave elements on their debut album.

Yonaka & Gurr play Mama Roux’s Birmingham on Thurs 11th May 2017. Tickets available here.
