Describe Your Sound

Our debut single “The King” is both heavy and majestic as a royal song should be.  The listener is captivated by intense musical rhythm with lyrical sneakiness and charm.  The King is a perfect introduction to Yalla Yalla’s distinctive melodic attack and is loaded with spacious effects and grooves.
