Yak 'Atlas Complex EP' 10"

The EP, largely recorded at the Third Man Studio and released on Friday 1st November 2019 through Virgin EMI and Third Man Records, follows on from the release of their critically acclaimed second album Pursuit of Momentary Happiness earlier this year. Frontman Oli Burslem explains, “‘Atlas Complex’ was recorded between Nashville and South London at the beginning of this summer. The “atlas complex” is centred around an idea of losing all sense of everything. It’s a state of mind in which a person believes that the world is on their shoulders and they’re unable to deal with what they perceive as endless problems and uncertainty.”  Following the release of Pursuit of Momentary Happiness, the trio completed a month long UK and European tour, followed by 18 dates supporting Foals and performances at Glastonbury and Green Man festivals.

In November they’ll play another run of headlines shows across the UK. Press: •“More refined and guttural, Yak show real intent on flourishing their sound.” – Clash  •“Yak are riotous and impossible to tame on their new LP.” – The Line of Best Fit 8/10 • “The trio’s second album is excessive but searches for contentment.” – NME.com 4/5.
