hmv's Next Big Thing... #176 whenyoung
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Irish indie poppers whenyoung...
Who Are They?
whenyoung are a trio, consisting of singer Aoife Power, guitarist Niall Burns and drummer Andrew Flood. Coming together in 2016, they came to prominence at the start of this year with two excellent singles 'Actor' and 'Silverchair' and were handpicked by supreme partyer Shane MacGowan and The Pogues to play at his 60th birthday party in Dublin in January
Now signed to Yala! Records, the label belonging to former Maccabees guitarist Felix White and are working away on their debut album. As well as all this, they've just come off a big tour with psychedelic indie types Peace and have a summer full of festivals ahead of them...
What Do They Sound Like?
Imagine the wonky pop goodness of Weezer fuzzed through Thurston Moore's pedal deck, that's about the size of it.
Why Should I Be Excited?
The trio bring dreamy pop melodies mixed with raw power and knuckle tight arrangements, that's why.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. Their new single 'The Collector' is below for your listening pleasure:
