Black Yaya is the new pop project from David Ivar, frontman and songwriter for Herman Dune. He has written a completely fresh batch of songs, in his own inimitable style but reworked by electronic producer Yuksek, who is releasing Black Yaya under his label Partyfine. He has just completed his first UK tour but continues to tour Europe throughout September.
The first single is "Paint A Smile on Me" - an explosion of colour and sound, the song has a fun party vibe, perfect for the tail end of the summer. The single also features a more mellow, smooth 70s soul inspired b-side "Glad Tidings". Both songs showcase David's skill at writing perfect pop tunes with a dark twist, with fantastic, polished pop arrangements.
