Just over a year since their first single "Hungry Heart" was released – a period that saw their unpredictable gigs and electrifying clutch of studio recordings earn them a reputation as the most exciting and talked about new act in the UK – Yak have channelled their ferocious live experience into their debut album 'Alas Salvation.'

Recorded with Pulp's Steve Mackey, it's a wired and ambitious record that refuses to be pigeonholed. Yet beneath all the head-spinning chaos lies a beating heart of great melodies and a hyperactively eclectic and inventive approach to making music.

Frontman Oli Burslem explains: "I was trying to make it a slightly schizophrenic record that had all these different elements, but had so much of everything that by the end it would all just be lost and everybody would be like, 'What the hell was that? I don't know what that was, but I kind of enjoyed it.'"
