Yak Attack
Yak Attack
Yak Attack is a live electronica power trio from Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2013,
the band has experienced steady growth over the past few years and has been
building buzz on the strength of its live shows and the instant connection its music
makes with new listeners. The group's music is best described as "organic
electronica", using skillful playing, live loops, and tightly constructed songs
combined with raw improvisation to build high-energy and uplifting music from
scratch, where every note is played and recorded live. The band draws on influences
from a wide spectrum of electronica, such as house, drum and bass, and breakbeat,
along with elements of jam, funk, and jazz. The result is a live show that is musically
sophisticated but widely accessible, with a diverse and engaged fanbase that travels
to out of town shows and festivals to witness the band's continually evolving sound.
Yak Attack has been selling out local and regional shows and has developed a
reputation as "the region's go to late night act" in the summer festival and afterparty
circuit. Fresh off a round of touring supporting jamtronica heavyweights STS9 and
Sunsquabi, the band has also shared the stage with established or up-and-coming
acts such as Fruition, Turkuaz, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and The Magic
Beans. After releasing "Safety Third" on Ropeadope records in 2018, the band is
currently recording their fourth full-length album, and about to embark on a packed
festival schedule including national events such as Camp Bisco and Jazzfest. Watch
for Yak Attack to bring its unique dance party to a venue near you.
