PURSUIT OF MOMENTARY HAPPINESS BY YAK

Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness

• Produced by Jason Pierce (Spiritualized, Spacemen 3) • Managed by Rough Trade / Out on Virgin/EMI ex-US • Debut album Alas Salvation released to great critical acclaim in 2016. The Guardian called it “a force of nature.” The band toured extensively surrounding its release, ending with a career-high performance at London’s Scala and the distinct impression that their music had reignited the rock n roll scene in the U.K. • Hometown: Wolverhampton, UK • PR: Big Hassle Media • “A gonzoid glam strut that lands somewhere between the Stones and Spiritualized” – Q Magazine • “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.”– Hero Magazine • “A sleazy riff-monster” – DIY Magazine • Pursuing album reviews at Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, PASTE, Spin, Mojo, DIY Magazine, etc.
Pitchfork Album Reviews Said:
"On their second album, this unruly British trio make the rare garage rock-informed record that aims for the upper reaches of Royal Albert Hall." - 2/7/2019
