Post-punk indie single set to hit on June 15th
Currently based in New Orleans – the birthplace of soul and jazz – Yo are a rock band who aren’t afraid to go against the grain. After travelling the world and themselves known in various corners of the USA and Europe, the music and song writing draws upon a wealth of inspirations and memories from the road.
The latest single taken from the album will be the hard hitting, punk laced track ‘Shake It’ – dripping in punchy bass-lines, quasi-spoken vocals and a distinctly trippy sensibility.

‘Shake It’ as a track shows just one of the many facets and styles that make Yo such an exciting band. Each track is specifically influenced by the place, time and events of its conception, so choosing a genre is something of a challenge.
The single is taken from the album ‘Vagrancy’, an LP which perfectly shows 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 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.
Altogether, it makes for a heady cocktail which is tough to pigeonhole, sewn together by the originality of vocalist Andre’s delivery.
Single ‘Shake It’ will be available from June 15th.
