Youth Club - indie pop from England

Youth Club


Although relatively new as a unit, there is performance and recording experience within Youth Club, which is evident in their début four track plus four remixes EP –  Colours – which is scheduled for release on the 28th. Light on the ears and radio friendly, Youth Club have created a summery initial release. Whilst I find some of the sounds a little too ‘commercial’ for me there is also a connectedness to the music which plays well with the audience.

The music is of no specific geographically discernible location, which gives the band the potential for a wide international audience, though the vocals firmly place it as from England. At times ranging to the soulful, the next uplifting dance, Youth Club compose well structured pieces with the panache required to suit the style.

I look forward to hearing more of Youth Club as I am certain they have plenty more of the more moody textures inside themselves that personally resonate with me. Time will tell which direction they set their sail. Having experience in the band, should help them to steer clear of  loosing the heart and soul of the sound.

She’s a Dancer is the opener of the EP.
