Yak are a musical enigma, they are effortlessly cool and consistent with every release. “All I Need Is Some Sunshine In My Life” represents a successful return in preparation for their all important second album, it is nothing short of mesmerising.
Opening with a confident yet tranquil mix of effects and distortion, the track mixes all the best elements of the London based band. At times calm, “All I Need Is Some Sunshine In My Life” rapidly converts to mass energy and explosion. This is something in which the band are effortlessly good at, it is rare to see a band as raw and expressive as Yak are.
Their latest single follows the release of 2016s ‘Alas Salvation,’ their critically acclaimed debut album. We can’t think of such as strong debut release, songs such as “Hungry Heart” and “Use Somebody” are beautifully chaotic in both studio and the live setting. Having supported the likes of The Libertines, The Last Shadow Puppets and more it is clear that their strong support from fans and industry alike is reputable and ever growing.
“Yak constantly impress, there are no faults in their back catalogue.”
“All I Need Is Some Sunshine In My Life” however, is effortless in creating strong atmosphere which is suited best to their live shows. In small venues they create an energy like no other, often mesmerising crowds and blowing sound systems to pieces. In bigger venues, their energy is amplified to create an explosion of impressive guitar based songs with effects to match. They are the ultimate live band!
With that in mind, their Autumn tour is perhaps the best opportunity to catch them at their best. They head to venues such as Leicester’s Cookie, Tunbridge Wells’ Forum and other more intimate settings. All the details are below.
