  • Yak – The Haunt, Brighton – 2nd November 2018

    Yak - The Haunt, Brighton - 2nd November Yak – The Haunt, Brighton – 2nd November 2018 As live bands go, you don’t get much more bang for your buck than Yak. Our first experience of the London band was at 234 Fest 2015, when lead singer Oliver Henry Burslem climbed up to the ceiling of the Green Door Store and dangled from the steel beam above the stage whilst screeching his rock’n’roll tones – memorable to say the least. Having released the fantastic debut Alas SalvationLP in 2016 and having featured on our Brightonsfinest...

    Yak – The Haunt, Brighton – Thursday 1st November 2018 Yak – The Haunt, Brighton – Thursday 1st November 2018 As live bands go, you don’t get much more bang for your buck than Yak. Creating a frantic yet enthralling encounter, you never know what you’re going to get at a Yak performance, though you can rely on being made to jump around raucously to their brilliantly loud racket. Our first experience of Yak was at 234 Fest 2015, when lead singer Oliver Henry Burslem climbed up to the ceiling of Green Door Store and dangled from the steel beam above the stage whilst screeching his rock’n’roll tones – memorable to say the...
  • YAK – The Green Door Store – 4th October 2017

    YAK – The Green Door Store – 4th October 2017 YAK – Green Door Store – 4th October 2017 YAK are back and are sounding as mighty as ever, elevating their sound to something bigger and darker. Live, their new sound shines through creating chaos at the Green Door Store.
  • Yak - Patterns - 7th June 2016

    Yak - Patterns - 7th June 2016 Yak - Patterns - 7th June 2016 Seeing 16-year-olds flail around in mosh pits to some may be their idea of hell. The irritating knocks as you try to peer over sweaty heads to see what is actually happening onstage, having the constant threat of one of them hurling their old man’s whiskey cabinet back up at you. Not in this instance, not whatsoever. It was refreshing to see a band arrive onstage and visibly inspire a group of teenagers at the front. Watching bands like Yak is the reason why people start bands in the first place. Regardless of the fact the venue did not always play in their flavour, they didn’t half give a good go at lamenting their hard post-punk sound into the confines of Patterns, smearing themselves across the stage, desperate to leave a lasting impression.
  • Yak - Alas Salvation

    Yak - Alas Salvation Yak - Alas Salvation Rightfully titled Yak, this three-piece are a little more than your average oxen. Particularly noted for their high tempo, shattering live performances, Yak are now in a position to drop their debut, self-released album Alas Salvation. An album that promises saviour but possesses more sins within the lurid rock’n’roll it puts forth. The album promises all the raw energy that many fantastic live bands lose on their debut LP, it promises the chaos but invariably walks the tightline of keeping it organised. To label them as a noise-rock band is not so far from the truth, but...
