YAAKS are a group of guys from Eastborne... their myspace is pretty empty of details, I think they're taking a leaf from WU LYF's book and going for the whole elusive identity thing, although I'm not sure if (like WU LYF) their name is also a ridiculous abbreviation, or they're one of those CAPITAL LETTERS bands. They make pretty danceable music with a bit of a serious, darker edge to it, like if you combined the intensity of Foals, Ed Mcfarlane's (of Friendly Fires fame) hips, and the more poppy bits of the last Crystal Castles album. I've put up 'HRHRHYTHM', which was played on both Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens late last year.
