Formed in 2019, Yard Act began life when friends Ryan Needham (Bass) and James Smith (Vocals) started creating minimalist rock tracks using a primitive drum machine and borrowed bass guitar. Later drafting in George Townend on drums, and Sammy Robinson on guitars whom they met at their spiritual home The Brudenell Social Club / Leeds. The quartet have only played three gigs but have already released two superb singles, pulsing with post-punk indie dance, their creativity thriving despite reduced circumstances this last year.
This is the one we've been waiting for! One of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Leeds scene for as long as we can remember have finally announced details of their debut album proper. Following a string of sell out singles and an EP, The Overload is set to catapult the band to dizzying new heights, starting with a huge hometown show at Leeds Irish Centre. Expect a mix of driving post-punk with dance floor ready indie grooves characterised by James' tongue in cheek observations of modern life. We can't wait for this one, it's going to be big!
