The Old Youths – ‘Midnight Takeaways’
Swindon-based band The Old Youths have released their superb debut single ‘Midnight Takeaways’, in March 2021. It is a timeless indie-rock single that sets the duo apart from the crowd.
A bright and punchy opening greets the listener. We adore the layered guitars, which fill the sonic spectrum with luscious colour. As the vocals enter, the instrumentation cuts away, leaving a single ear-catching acoustic guitar.
The vocals are filled with character and charm. We adore the ‘Midnight Takeaways’; the intelligent instrumental arrangement lets the song shine in the light in which it was written.
As the chorus kicks in, the audience is fully engaged. The Old Youths take the listener on unexpected twist and turns with unusual chordal progressions and a stop-start arrangement. This all adds texture and charm to ‘Midnight Takeaways’; it is a song that will have you reaching for the repeat button!
The band say about their music, “As it’s just the two of us, our writing process is really simple and straightforward, there’s never any hassle or a bad recording or writing session. I believe that this translates into the songs we’ve been making, and hopefully, it’s evident on our debut single.”
The Old Youths are comprised of band members Lucas Persin and Joshua Weaver. They are talented musicians who complement each other’s sound perfectly. We are so excited to have discovered this debut single and very much look forward to hearing what the group will do next.
The Old Youths have a bright future ahead of them, and we are eagerly anticipating their next release. Until then, ‘Midnight Takeaways’ is available from the link below; enjoy today!
