Leeds newcomers Yard Act have dropped their debut single, ‘The Trapper’s Pelts’.

Out now via Zen F.C., and produced by Bill Ryder Jones, the unnerving slice of post-punk “skewers elements of the American frontier into a Scarface-type narrative set against the backdrop of a mundane West Yorkshire suburb,” James Smith (vocals) explains.

The band was formed last year by James and Ryan Needham (bass, and also ‘of’ Menace Beach), later joined by Sammy Robinson (guitar) and George Townend (drums), who they met at The Brudenell Social Club.

Give ‘The Trapper’s Pelts’ a listen below.
