Yaaks are best described as a more electro based version of Foals. That similarity becomes obvious with just a few listens of their single ‘HRHRHYTHM’. Despite keeping a very low key, and disclosing as little information about themselves to the outside world, both Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens have played that song. It’s tropical, catchy, and very danceable, another strong comparison being the loveable Friendly Fires.

The only other material that’s available is a demo on both their myspace and soundcloud, which, although instrumental, sounds equally promising. From what I can gather (only from the above picture I found), there are five of them in the band, and they hail from Eastbourne, near Brighton. These guys are definitely a group to keep a eye on, whilst I suspect the labels are one step ahead this time. Check out ‘HRHRHYTHM’ below.
