Primed for an international breakthrough, YONAKA have today announced the release of their EP, Welcome To My House, out 26thMay via LAVA/Republic Records. The 3-piece have also unveiled the entrancing title track, and video which can be seen here.
The track layers airy synths and an unexpectedly danceable bassline above a glitchy beat accented by guitar. Meanwhile, Theresaalternates between soulful intonation and a theatrically climactic chorus with fluttering register as her voice resounds, “Welcome to my house.”
The accompanying visual finds Alex & George in white suits seated in a circle on folding chairs like a support group as Theresa dons a black couture gown. She sings to the camera, leaving every ounce of emotion and truth on the track. Simultaneously, she emerges as a 22nd century rockstar goddess with no shortage of style…
On upcoming EP and new single, lead singer Theresa Jarvis commented: “Each song represents a memory or emotion inside me. The experiences I have gone through have all spent time inside my house and consumed me. With the EP being called Welcome To My House, visually I want listeners to be able to open up a door, come into my world and see what each song meant to me at that specific time in my life.”
The track notably arrives on the heels of the band’s latest release PANIC, which has racked up over 2 million combined streams, and received several spins on BBC Radio 1 including 5 plays on Clara Amfo’s show!
Up next the band will celebrate the release with numerous live dates this spring including The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Reading & Leeds Festival and more. See full tour dates below.

Sound bends to the whim of emotion. For YONAKA, music morphs in tandem with moods. Distortion teems with tension in moments of heavy catharsis, only to come back down in an exhale of electronic reprieve. As such, the trio —Theresa Jarvis [vocals], Alex Crosby [bass], and George Werbrouck-Edwards [guitar]— fuse pop, punk, and hip-hop into a hypnotic alternative rock hybrid. The group burrow deep inside themes of mental health, empowerment and the here and now with clear intention and expansive vision. After amassing over 150 million streams and earning widespread acclaim, YONAKA kickstarted their new compelling chapter with single PANIC.
The group has quietly emerged as a phenomenon with 150 million-plus streams and the applause of the Guardian, NME, and Clash. Beyond collaborations with FEVER 333 and Barns Courtney, they notably joined forces with Bring Me The Horizon for the standout ±ªþ³§. The band secured placements of their music in popular media, including the Apple TV+ series ROAR, Marvel’s SheHulk (which reached #1 in the US and #7 globally on Shazam charts), and video games such as Fortnight and NHL 23. Recently they teamed up with e-sports team G2 for the release of DETONATEthe track features hardcore gamer, metalhead and TikTok sensation Jeris Johnson, and its music video features G2 creators and players.
