Yarni shares ‘Cherub’ single ‘Cherub’ influenced by 70s jazz funk and announces album night in Sydney and Matilda in Sheffield

Inspired by the ’70s jazz-funk track “Why Did You Do It” by Stretch, “Cherub” features saxophonist Jonoa’s innate swing and bassist Ally McMahon’s metronomic movement.

Yarni invited the set to record whatever came their way, “there were so many great takes coming up that it was just a matter of editing them into a flowing arrangement,” says Yarni.

Hailed as “incredible” by the late and great electronics icon Andrew Weatherall, Yarni is a purely self-taught multi-instrumentalist, who has spent years honing his technical skills and tastes through an ever-evolving creative journey.
