Getting To Know The Yada Yada Yadas

Inspired by 90’s US alt rock, Durham based trio The Yada Yada Yadas arrived on the music scene 18 months ago and swiftly became the darlings inside the alt rock / fuzzy pop sound sphere. Delivering fresh and appealing noise, BBC 6 Music took notice after they unleashed their debut single Oceans, leading onto playing a bunch of shows and festivals over the past few months as well as putting out a nostalgic new single Seven Years via Silent Kid Records.

Track of the Week / LTNT – Happy Days

Rejoyce! LTNT are back with a staggering new tune HAPPY DAYS, the first single taken from their new EP Yode, out July 13th.

The band called it “a lesson in the negative side effects of being genuinely happy.”

Vocalist Liam says: Going from a homeless goblin’s lifestyle to being married with a nice flat and back again has taught me that the devil makes work for content brains. Take the easy route, get the shit prize. This song was me trying to warn myself about that even before I knew it. “

Check out the lyric video below and make sure to follow the band for upcoming news!

AKA George: “I’ll always have freedom over my creativity whether I’m signed or not”

When I first spoke to AKA George four years ago and saw him perform live in Brighton, I was extremely impressed with his boundless talents as well as the undying passion and energy he puts into the creation of his music and performing. Such talent is rare and for that reason major labels wanted to sign him, but, at the time he wasn’t ready and declined the offers. Instead, he went for a wise move – keep on evolving as an artist and improve his songwriting and performing skills. So for the past few years AKA George has been working hard and putting out music for his dedicated fans; music that’s original, creative and brilliant. His latest single Stone Cold Classic, a tune as cool and catchy as it can get, has become a huge hit and proves that AKA George is now more than ready to get signed and show the rest of the world what he’s capable of.

Here is our interview about his musical journey, creative process, performing, fans and plans for next year.
