Czech Republic's Yana has been making a name for herself on the Irish music scene after 2 brilliant 2019 singles "Distant Shore" and "Will You Be There?". Both songs featured Liam Ó Maonlaí from Hothouse Flowers.
Today Yana releases her third single from her upcoming "Distant Shore" EP. "Trapped In A Cage" features Elaine McCarthy from Cork band The Lost Gecko on cello.
"Trapped In A Cage" is yet again a very atmospheric song from Yana which is quickly becoming a signature trait of hers. Yana has a unique ability to bewitch her listeners with her vocals. The cello adds a whole new dimension of melancholic dread whilst again being somewhat playful.
