a ridiculously wired & ambitious record that refuses to be pigeonholed - this electrifying london trio have channelled their ferocious live experience into this insane & utterly addictive debut.

Yet beneath all the head-spinning chaos lies a beating heart of great melodicism & a hyperactively eclectic & inventive approach to making music - one that ignores every rule in the book. with Pulp legend Steve Mackey at the controls, they veer between ty segall  / fuzz's gritty-grungey glam-rock stomp, radiohead's more restless & frantic workouts, tame impala's early kaleido-psych, the stooges' urgency, the cramps' garage rock.....& it's all done at a pace that barely lets up (not that you'd want it to). f***'ing fabulous! "yak's galloping songs are slathered with thick, fuzzed out guitar & occasional squealing sax, pushing every available needle into the red" 8/10 - uncut.
