AYAKARA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Ayakara have developed quite a fanbase in Edinburgh, since forming in 2015 while still at school. The Leithers have released three EPs and are establishing a reputation for their live shows, which often involve audience participation.
With a pacey sound which draws on everything from 1960s garage to 1990s indie rock, the quintet’s next release Bitter Kiss, is likely to win new converts, in part thanks to its musical nod to The Strokes. The single is due to coincide with the band’s latest tour which begins in Dundee on 10 September and ends in London on 24 September.
