Release Notes

Yoko-Zuna release Luminols, five tracks showcasing one of the best live acts in NZ!

All five tracks show a varied sound from Yoko-Zuna, and a band which have become incredibly comfortable in their own skin. Ranging from the pulsating electronic sounds of ‘Lightning Sabres’ to the brooding slow-burn of ‘Orchard St’, Yoko-Zuna is a band taking their sound to the next level.

Recorded at Auckland’s Red Bull Studios alongside in-house engineer Ben Lawson, Luminols features guest vocals from NZ music royalty, along with some of NZ’s brightest talents. Auckland-based rapper Lukan Raisey welcomes listeners to the Luminols party with the atmospheric opener ‘Canvas’, before Shapeshifter’s P-Digsss’s trademark howl and energy punctuates lead-single ‘Lightning Sabres’. ‘Orchard St’ combines delicate keys with powerful verses from Tom Scott, while ‘One Question’ puts Laughton Kora front and centre with an infectious bassline and forceful drumming. Closing track ‘Yes’ features rising talents Heavy and LarzRanda, and shows the band further pushing their sound into again different territories.
