Yonaka are a four piece from Brighton and their song ‘F.W.T.B.’ is one of the most intriguing things to come into the Lost In The Manor inbox. Normally I shy away from commercial indie. Royal Blood are dad rock, and most things sound like Catfish and the Bottlemen or Pigeon Detectives or U2 or Peace nowadays. This one’s resolutely not the case. ‘F.W.T.B.' possesses a level of badassery that we haven’t seen since the likes of No Doubt. Frontwoman Theresa Jarvis lets us know that we’re ‘fucking with the boss now’ and boy, you better believe it. Gnarly sliding guitars and a mesmerising high fidelity production approach makes for a genuinely flooring performance. Top marks.
