Portland, OR-based electronic trio Yak Attack was founded in 2013. Since then, the band has successfully managed to generate a buzz around its brand of music which makes extensive use of loops and sub-genres of electronic music, especially electronica. A regular on the local nightclub scene, it has become the go-to act for all late-night events including festivals and afterparties. Yak Attack released its first album Real World Conditions in 2014 and followed up with its second album The Radiant Kind in 2017. 2018 started with the release of the trio's first live album Live at Beltane in July, followed by the single "Pump and Dump" and studio album Safety Third. Over the course of its career, the band has played at events such as Camp Bisco and Jazzfest, and also headlined its own US tour.
