MIMR Band Chat: Yard Act

Emerging as one of best new bands around, rock outfit Yard Act from Leeds with their brand of orchestral post-punk goodness are ready to bring their jaunty sound to the masses

They spoke to us about their beginnings, house renovation and garden parties


MIMR: Thrilled to have you on the blog, tell us a brief introduction about the band and how you decided upon your musical direction and style?


YA: We started in January 2020 and managed 3 gigs before lockdown. All we agreed on in regards to direction and style was that the song comes first. 

MIMR: ‘Fixer Upper’ has become one of MIMR favourite tracks this year so far and it’s totally relatable, we all know ‘a Graham’. Are you happy with how the release was recieved and if you could do up your dream home what would be 3 essential work that would have to take place?


YA: I would have two of everything, new, no old shite and a walk in freezer so I can store more of the dead for longer.



MIMR: Lockdown has been a strange time for everyone in the industry, how have you coped as a band during this time and what plans do you have for rest of the year?


YA: We’ve mainly just drank lager in each other’s gardens, and written about 40 demos in the computer. We’re just taking this year as it comes. 

MIMR: Live music including the festival season have been practically wiped out by the virus, what’s the one thing you miss about live shows?


YA: When gigs return, I will never skip the support act ever again.


MIMR: Being stuck in the house day upon day can be a tiring slog, what acts of pleasure have you found to help pass the time away from music?

YA: Existing in the moment.



MIMR: Great to have you on the blog, how can people follow you guys on social media?


YA: Thanks for having us, if you want to find us on the internet, we aren’t hard to find
