    Brighton four-piece Yonaka create dark, distorted, beats-heavy guitar rock, fronted by the charismatic Theresa Jarvis. 2018 saw them tour with Bring Me The Horizon, with their latest EP Creature being released in November.

Radio X Great X-Pectations Live will be hosted by John Kennedy, presenter of Radio X’s week night new music show X-Posure. “The most trusted man in music” was the first person to play Adele on the radio and has been instrumental in introducing artists including Florence + the Machine, Mumford And Sons and The xx to the UK airwaves.
