The Line of Best Fit
From the record’s opening seconds until the very end it is explosive, soaring, and entirely unique – there’s nobody worth comparing them to. Yonaka are here to exist in their own realm.
They’re one of the most exciting bands around and their debut proves why they’ve always had such an unwavering belief in themselves. Now, it’s impossible not to believe in them as well.
Though moods shift on this debut – take the softer and angelic yet soaring ‘Guilty’ contrasting to the starry-eyed ‘Rockstar’, which dreams in late night bright lights - 'Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow' keeps the same high octane ambience throughout; the band's untouchable energy will likely succeed in both the mainstream and outside of it.
The Guardian

Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow doesn’t make reconfiguring the charts in a headbang-friendly sonic palate seem like a particularly worthwhile endeavour – instead, it only underlines the general sense that rocking out, at least in a conventional way, currently feels like a creative dead end.

The full-length is a more saturated version of the bravado-fuelled angular rock we’ve heard previously, but, to its detriment, minimises many of the idiosyncrasies that earned their status as rock’s new rule-breakers.
British indie rock outfit releases their debut with arena ready torch songs played with ambition and vigor, paired with vocalist Theresa Jarvis's soaring vocals and guitars with pounding drums skyrocketing with exhilaration. There's a bit of hit or miss on some tracks but overall, a promising start for the Brighton rockers with a bright future on the horizon.
A very debut
There's nothing groundbreaking or genre changing here but DAMN it's catchy as hell and sometimes that's all you need.
is recomended very nice
Half of these tracks will no doubt end up on a 'walk like a badass' playlist on your favourite streaming service.
Don't Wait 'Til Tomorrow is bags of fun but nothing groundbreaking.
