A Neo-Soul singer, Yayné has the ability to blend classic smooth vocal styles with future flows and scats, using clever lyrics to keep the listener connected to what matters the most; the music.

Her debut EP ‘Simple Pleasure’ plays on the two sides of pleasure; that which we so often yearn for. One being the basic pleasures that bring us happiness above all the daily stresses of life. Then there’s the “darker” side… the kind of pleasure that is simply in our human nature to chase, but isn’t always attainable without leading us astray into situations and complications we hadn’t anticipated.

‘IDFWU’ features a guest verse from MeloDownz and is produced by ActiveWear. Check out the whole EP on Bandcamp.


Turn It Up is a feature on Base FM where we showcase a new track from Aotearoa every week. Tune in weekdays at 10am and 4pm to hear this weeks top local pick.
