Yaju and the Hypertensive

Memories and reflections on everyday experiences inspired singer Yaju to compose and release the EP “Years Before The Bad Times”. Released in 2021, the work features “Pass Times”, “Come To Be Mine”, “Walk Alone” and “Confused”.

But life changes made the composer find new creative paths. From bar tables and studio visits, Yago gathered friends to create new songs and reinterpret old ones. In this way, Oliver Silvestre took over the drums, Dierre Pichorz incorporated the bass and Thiago Santos started to lead the guitar. Finally formed the band.

As in the live session, wearing yellow raincoats, the musicians climbed onto the stage of the “Borbulha” event last November, announcing what was to come. Now, the expectation is to continue the creative process together and release new material soon.
