Live-electronica trio Yak Attack has been touring relentlessly around the country over the past year. Somehow, the group has somehow found the time to get in the studio to record music for their sophomore album, The Radiant Kind. With a release date of May 1st, the Oregon-based act is ready to drop some fresh funk, downtempo, jazz-laced beats on the scene, flashing their seriously creative technique.
Recorded over the last year at B-Side Studios and The Map Room in their hometown of Portland, Dave Dernovsek (keys), Rowan Cobb (bass), and Nick Werth (drums) have been putting in serious work for this upcoming album. Yak Attack will celebrate The Radiant Kind with an album-release party at The Goodfoot in Portland on Saturday, April 29th. Check out the first single and title track from the album, “The Radiant Kind,” via Soundcloud below.
