LA-based artist YESLA has dropped her brand new stellar single If You Dare. Produced with her close friend JHNY WZDM out of her own home, this attitude-packed anthem is proving YESLA as an artist to watch in the alternative rock scene.
Sharing her thoughts on her new release: “If You Dare is the misfit anthem. A battle cry of the wallflower. This is for the person who is constantly held back by pressure to fit a societal “Norm”. For as long as I can remember, people have wanted me to be something I’m not or would burden me with ideas of who they think I should be. I wrote this song as an ode to finally realizing my full potential, getting out of my own way & owning my authentic self.”
With a downright riotous vibe flowing throughout If You Dare is an untamable beast in its own right. Boasting an electrifying and dynamic soundscape that manages to be both uniquely modern all the while paying homage to the greats of Rock ‘N’ Roll. Taking influence from legends such as Black White, The Black Keys and Queens of the Stone Age, YESLA and JHNY WZMD have created a truly fierce new sound.
YESLA explained the idea behind If You Dare with JHNY WZDM, “We wanted to create a song that was about breaking out of your shell & just becoming who you are meant to be. We first recorded the drums & bass live, then added electric guitars & topped it off with juicy vocals.”
