Despite the grammatical error in the French name, no mistakes are made with Yannick Iluga’s unique musical creations. With only a few singles in the bag, he’s already been described by the musical press as “Joy Division meets Paul Simon in Graceland.”

The 21 year old South African explores two of our fave musical styles, dark indie layered with electronic beats, which is then skilfully crafted through a South African Instagram filter. The multi-instrumentalist describes his music as "noir wave" or "new wave with an African aesthetic". This striking combination has left him successfully supporting the massive indie-electro band Foals! Youthful Yannick’s voice has a haunting, soulful maturity that has us completely hooked.
