Ya ya you heard it, David Ivar is back as solo artist Black Yaya. The frontman from Herman Dune is going it alone, and if this first track is anything to go by then it was the right decision. It’s folky, it’s mysterious and it’s “anger and guile”.

Black Yaya’s self-titled debut album is due to be released on March 2nd, and with that, he premieres the first track and corresponding video for lead song ‘Under Your Skin’. The video is stripped back, without a cinematic story that Ivar claims distracts from the song. You see him and backing singer Mayon in skin tight wetsuits inspired by the song title.

And if ‘Under Your Skin’ has got under your skin, you can book tix now to see Black Yaya’s headline show at The Lexington on April 9th.
