Tonight YAK returns to Merleyn with a terrific second album. The London band offers a mix of garage punk, punk rock and dirty and gritty rock & roll. Edgy drums, a screeching guitar and a bass at full throttle, combined with the vocals and looks of singer Oliver Burslem, complete the picture. Earlier this year, the band released their second album “Pursuit of Momentary Happiness” through Third Man Records (Jack White’s label), which was also responsible for releases by acts like Captain Beefheart, Dinosaur Jr and of course The White Stripes. On this second album there are slightly more influences from psychedelia to discern, but the familiar grittiness of their sound is still very much there.
