By The Talent Club

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. They spent the early part of 2019 touring in support of live electronic heavyweights STS9 and Sunsquabi, the band has also shared the stage with emerging 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, while making their debut at national events such as Camp Bisco and Jazzfest, and many new cities across the country on their US fall tour. Watch for Yak Attack to bring its unique dance party to a venue near you.
