Release and promotion

Singles

Five singles were released on The Overload from late 2021 to early 2022. The self-titled track, "The Overload" was released on 7 September 2021.[3] The second single, "Land of the Blind", was released on 28 October 2021.[4] "Payday" was released on 23 November 2021.[5] The two 2022 singles were "Rich"[6] and "Pour Another".[8]

Music videos

Corresponding with the single, the music video for the self-titled track, "The Overload", was released on the band's Vevo on 7 September 2021.[3] The video features the band performing at a Car Boot Sale. The video was directed by James Slater.[11] Slater also directed the music videos for their second and fourth singles, "Land of the Blind" and "Rich", respectively. In an interview with DIY, lead singer James Smith notes, "I had the idea for a music video in which a magician does tricks but everybody keeps applauding. I thought it was too on the nose to be a decent satire but I’ve been subtle in the past and nobody has picked up on it so this time I thought we would just be blunt. James [Slater] developed the idea and came up with the concept of the magician holding the café hostage via hypnosis."[12]

Yard Act are a British rock band from Leeds, comprising James Smith (vocals, lyrics), Ryan Needham (bass), Sam Shjipstone (guitar) and Jay Russell (drums).[1] Their debut album The Overload was released on 21 January 2022 and debuted at number 2 on the UK Albums Chart.[2]

History

Prior to forming the band, vocalist James Smith and bassist Ryan Needham had both been members of other Leeds-based bands. Smith was a member of Post War Glamour Girls and Needham played in Menace Beach, two bands that released a split EP together in 2016. After the release of the EP, the pair began discussing forming a band together, a plan that eventually came to fruition in September 2019, when the pair moved into a house together in Meanwood. They soon recruited guitarist Sammy Robinson and drummer George Townend who played together in Treeboy & Arc.[3] During this period, Robinson departed from the group, leading to the recruitment of Sam Shjipstone.[3] Prior to the announcement of their debut album, the band had only released a total of four singles independently. These singles were then compiled onto an EP, titled Dark Days, released in 2021.[4]

Their debut album The Overload was released on 21 January 2022.[5][6] The group is "one to watch" in the BBC's Sound of 2022 shortlist.[7] The group was also named one of Paste's "Best New Artists of 2021".[8]

Musical style

Critics have categorised the band's music as post-punk[9] and indie rock.[10] Often making use of elements of 1970s Italo disco, ’90s hip-hop and early 2000s indie rock.[3]

Their lyrics are often political, discussing opposition to topics including capitalism, gentrification and social class, told using "dark humor and cynical storytelling".[10] Their lyrics also take a surrealist style, such as on the song Payday from their first album.
