The fast-rising four-piece band from Briton, Yonaka, went out for their first European tour as headliners. Their reputation is already well established in UK, were they are known to be one of the best live bands of the moment. They stopped in Paris for a small, intimate but explosive show at the Backstage by the Mill venue.
First one to take the stage, Tillie did an impressive job to motivate the small public already gathered. Very dynamic, with electro-pop-rock bangers that will undoubtedly take over Europe very soon, she really appeared as a strong candidate to be the next future pop star. We advise you to keep an eye on her!
The Ninth Wave were the second band of the night. Their music, more on the post-punk side of alternative rock takes a new intensity live. With 4 to 5 members on stage, they delivered a solid and catchy set. The guitar-bass duo really is powerful, both of them completing and improving each other melodies to give efficient songs.
Yonaka didn’t waste time. As soon as they went on stage, they launched their hit-song, Bad Company, a single of their future first album to go out on May 31st. Their quite short setlist is a list of all of their bangers that everyone knew in the room, from Creature to their last single “Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow”. Spectators were not that numerous (your loss if you weren’t there) but all the people that came were completely transported by the amazing performance of the quartet. Their presence in such a small venue as the Backstage by The Mill is almost indecent, as they already mastered the codes of ‘how to do deliver a striking live show’ in much bigger venue.
