It takes only one listen to the raw and explosive 'Alas Salvation' to see why.
Just over a year since their first single "Hungry Heart" was released – a period that saw their unpredictable gigs and electrifying clutch of studio recordings earn them a reputation as the most exciting and talked about new act in the UK – Yak have channelled their ferocious live experience into their debut album 'Alas Salvation'.
Recorded with Pulp's Steve Mackey, 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.
