Fast rising stars of the UK music scene, London’s Yak have been garnering rapid momentum over the past several months. Their unpredictable gigs and electrifying clutch of studio recordings have earned them a reputation as the most exciting and talked about new act and trio have channeled their ferocious live experience into their debut album Alas Salvation (on their own label Octopus Electrical – via Kobalt). Recorded with Pulp’s Steve Mackey as producer, it’s a wired and ambitious record that refuses to be pigeonholed. Yet beneath all the head-spinning chaos lies a beating heart of great melodicism and a hyperactively eclectic and inventive approach to making music. It’s the band’s first US release since their Third Man Records debut, The No EP.
