Yard Act, everyone’s new favorite British post-punks (us included), made their US television debut on Thursday with an appearance on Fallon.
Fresh off a run of SXSW shows, the Leeds quartet delivered the title track from their The Overload debut. Frontman James Smith cut through the late-night haze with not only his acerbic speak-sing style, but some solid dance moves. At one point, he switched up the lyrics a bit as he stared down the camera to sing, “America, are you listening? I’m actually really nice!”

The performance did feel like something of a potential career-maker, so any remaining tickets to their upcoming North American tour dates may not last long. Get yours here. Yard Act have a handful of shows scheduled between now and Coachella, and then it’s back home to the UK for a summer leg.
