The debut self-released single by newcomers Whenyoung just landed in my inbox and swiftly wound it’s way into my mind.
So far I’ve received very little information about the band, instead choosing to let the music do the talking, or to get closer to the truth, letting the music do the shouting, stomping, jumping around and teasing.
Whenyoung sound like a number of things and make a great first impression for themselves. They sound brash, they sound like your favourite garage-rock band that you’d forgotten you’d loved, they sound slightly Scandinavian, they sound flirtatious, and they sound like fun.
Within two minutes they cram monochromatic shades of PJ Harvey, The Kills and Ladytron into See How They Run, and I for one, am already hooked.
