Currently based in New Orleans – the birthplace of soul and jazz – Yo are a rock band not afraid to go against the grain. After traveling the globe and making homes in various corners of the USA and Europe, the music and songwriting draws upon a wealth of inspirations and tales from the road.
Their latest single ‘Shake It’ is dripping in punchy bass-lines, quasi-spoken vocals and a distinctly trippy sensibility. Watch Below…
The single is taken from the album ‘Vagrancy’, ( out now on iTunes ) an LP which demonstrates perfectly the versatile nature of Yo’s songwriting. Songs such as ‘Shake It’ are seemingly built for the high energy of live performance, but other tracks on the album suit different environments. Whether chilling out at a festival, going for it on a club dancefloor, jumping around at a live gig or relaxing in a local pub, there will be a song on this album which fits perfectly to every situation.
You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day.
If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
