Last week the post-rap-punk gruppo YARD ACT out of Leeds, performed the title track
of their victorious debut LP on the popular American Tonight TV Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Until early last year, after a couple of singles, nobody ever heard about them (except me, of course). But halfway 2021, their name started to pop up here and there in the British media (the experts on hyping). A few months later they were suddenly the next big thing
of 2022 on multiple music websites/zines/blogs. And now they woke up Amercia up too.
Last January the debut LP The Overload landed and got euphoric reviews. Agreed, it’s a great debut, but after several plays it sounded too familiar with other British bands from the ongoing post-punk rebirth (Ditz, Crows, Life, Shame, Squid etc…) and therefore will not go in into history as one of the best debuts ever.
Anyways, from nowhere to American TV, here’s Yard Act…
THE OVERLOAD album…
