Yak - Bellyache

From ten days in Australia to ten days in RAK Studios to ten days in New York, their sophomore record The Pursuit of Momentary Happiness was Oli’s statement of some eighteen-months spent living out of his car and the band putting literally everything into their music. Songs even more forthright and sonically magnified by strings, a brass section, and even recordings of birds, they worked with producer Marta Salogni [Bjork’s Utopia] and Jason Pierce [Spiritualized, Spacemen 3] – who features on one of the tracks – to collate the chaos into a full-length that’s bursting with attitude. Yak’s second offering delivers a band on the edge… which is precisely where they thrive.
