YAK – ALL I NEED IS SOME SUNSHINE IN MY LIFE (Review)

YAK RETURN WITH A INCREDIBLE RENDITION OF 60’S GOSPEL CLASSIC; ALL I NEED IS SOME SUNSHINE IN MY LIFE. READ OUR REVIEW.

YAK released their debut album only last year, yet they headed straight back into the studio to get underway with a follow up.

We may not have heard anything from this sophomore yet, but that doesn’t mean YAK haven’t treated us to some new music.

Their recent release is an incredible take on the gospel classic ‘All I Need Is Some Sunshine In My Life’ by The Dixie Nightingale’s.

Produced by Tame Impala’s Jay Gum Watson, the track captures all of the best parts of YAK and combines them together.

With dark, brooding overtones and doubled up vocals. The track is certainly made their own. Oli Burlsem provides his usual intense singing and fuzzy, distorted guitars. The chorus is actually such a sing-a-long moment you find yourself familiar with the lyrics upon first listen.

The B-side to the track is ‘Wait and See‘ a slow, apologetic ballad and a Lee Hazelwood cover.

Listen to both the tracks below:
