Having last night been announced as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World, Yonaka make their stunning return with ’Seize The Power’, an 8-track mixtape exclusively pressed to vinyl via Blood Records.
This incredibly honest body of work explores themes such empowerment, hopefulness and acceptance. Spanning 8 tracks produced entirely by the band, it includes previous singles Raise Your Glass, Call Me A Saint, Ordinary and title track Seize The Power.
Theresa said of the mixtape, “Seize The Power is a collection of songs to empower you. We all possess the power within but through life we are always put down by others, told to be quiet and not express ourselves; this makes us less confident and we lose ourselves. I wanted to take back control and yes, I’m not in control all the time but when I’m there I’m untouchable. This is a wake up call. Anyone can be anything they put their mind to. Be who you want! Everything up until now has lead to this moment so take the moment and make it yours and enjoy it.”
The record comes on blue and white ‘corona-effect’ wax, limited to 500 copies and signed by the band ahead of performances at the sold out Download Pilot event this Saturday with the likes of While She Sleeps and Enter Shikari, and 110 Above and Reading And Leeds.
Please note that Blood Records is a pre-ordering platform, the expected release date of this record is 15/07/21. All images for illustrative purposes, final product may differ.
