London-based singer, songwriter, and producer YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB has been making waves in the music industry since her debut EPI "Thought I Knew You, Boy Was I Wrong" hit the scene in March 2023. Known for her unique blend of indie, alternative, and bedroom pop infused with folk influences, she has now surprised fans with her latest offering, "SNAKES," an indie punk anthem with a grunge twist that will transport early 00's emo/pop punk lovers back in time.
With poignant lyrics revolving around the struggle of being surrounded by the wrong crowd and navigating life amidst adversity, YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB's melodic verses build an intense tension, leading to an anthemic chorus driven by colossal riffs and relentless energy.
"I wrote the song in about an hour, hence why it's quite simplistic lyrically. It pretty much speaks for itself, and it's something I needed to get off my chest," says YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB. "Sonically, it's quite different from what I've done so far, but it's pretty much inspired by all the music that I grew up listening to: Sum 41, Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, then State Champs, The Story So Far, and ROAM."
This rising star is set to grace the stage at Camden Assembly on Wednesday, July 26th, as part of the indie club night iykyk, where she will be joined by Eyelar and other talented acts. Fans can grab their tickets now to experience YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB's electrifying live performance.
