As announced last week, Yak are set to release their most thrilling material yet in the form of a second EP titled ‘No’, produced by Pulp’s Steve Mackey, on 13th November on Jack White’s Third Man Records. Today the trio have unveiled the official video for the release’s title track. Directed by ex-Jesus And Mary Chain member Douglas Hart (who’s also made videos for Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and The Horrors), the disorientating, sense-exploding clip captures exactly why Yak are fast becoming known as the UK’s most ferociously exciting live band.
