Malmö punks YAST burst apart with ‘When You’re Around’ track

Swedish daydreamers’ latest track arrives ahead of a second album.

Roadtripping, daydreaming Swedish five-piece YAST are back with ‘When You’re Around’, their first new material since a head-turning self-titled LP.

For the unfamiliar, YAST’s first work was as simple as it gets, sky-reaching guitar parts sharing company with dizzy atmospherics. Anyone with car keys and a map to the beach was likely to get swept along, and the formula hasn’t shifted with ‘When You’re Around’.

This time round, YAST bring added earnestness to their routine. Whereas before the message was simply about escape - pure and unhinged - now they’re bringing romance into the equation. Suddenly this Malmö group are making their route-one message more inclusive.
