New Orleans the birthplace of soul and jazz – Yo are a rock band not afraid to go against the tide. After travelling a lot and making themselves known in various corners of the USA and Europe, the music and songwriting draws upon a wealth of inspirations and tales from the road.
This latest single picked from their album will be the unforgettable, punk laced track ‘Shake It’ – dripping in punchy bass-lines, quasi-spoken vocals and a distinctly trippy sensibility.

‘Shake It’ as a track represents just one of the many facets and styles that make Yo such an interesting band. Each track is specifically influenced by the place, time and events of its conception, so pinning down a genre is something of a challenge.
Single ‘Shake It’ will be available from June 15th.
