Whatever naivety Australian music audiences have when hearing the name Yard Act is about to end. The four-piece post-punk group from Leeds are already most of their way through conquering the UK and have their sights set on Down Under, having locked in a Laneway tour and an exclusive pressing of their debut album The Overload with your mates here at Waxx Lyrical.


In the mother country, the lads have the fastest selling debut vinyl record this century and, with what's even rarer an achievement, it's actually worthy of all the hype. It has earned most of the accolades that a young English band including a Mercury Prize nomination and created a fan in Elton John, but at the crux is a classic British album that embraces the current obsession the country has with post-punk and offers it more heart and has more in common with the like of Blur and Pulp than it does Shame or IDLES.


Nuanced, everyday characters are created and themes of money and lack thereof go hand in hand with musical artifices, ad libs, strong tunefulness and pop sensibilities, driving and danceable grooves and unexpected guitar counter-melodies throughout. It is a political record, but in the same way that all great observations of human nature are – a messy, complex, knowingly hypocritical snapshot of our current state of play, as exciting as it is amusing, as impressive as it is likely to keep any listening ears on their toes.
