Spotlight!: Young Earth

young earthI’ve often thought that names say a lot about a band, but while the actual young Earth was harsh and lifeless, this Dublin based band are anything but. This up-and-coming indie quartet are brimming with bright energy, youthful exuberance and an air of lovable charm, producing some of the finest indie pop to ever emerge from the Emerald Isle. ‘Frequency Illusion’ features a great driving rhythm and spiralling guitar work, ‘Worth It’ is an infectious festival ready anthem, while the catchy hooks of ‘Got a Secret’ show a heavier side to the band and carries a kind of roguish air to it. ‘Under Cover’ has some sublime bass tones and is reminiscent of Royal Blood in the chorus, while ‘Let Go’ plays around with more refined, sun-drenched soundscapes that could have come straight from LA. Perhaps the real moral behind the name Young Earth is that they will grow, and become even more vibrant and full of life as time goes on. Regardless of what comes next however, Young Earth are sounding on fine form on their debut EP.

Fans of The Vaccines, Circa Waves, Two Door Cinema Club and The Kooks should check out their debut EP Frequency Illusion out 7th November

Top Tracks: Young Earth – Got A Secret

Dublin based band Young Earth are on to a winner with their first new song of the year. ‘Got A Secret’ is a pure-bred indie rock banger, the perfect crowd-pleaser for festivals and clubs alike with its catchy hooks and superb spiralling riffs. It’s one of a dying breed of the iconic noughties sound of bands like Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse, a reminder of a time when indie ruled the world. Whether you want upbeat and carefree vibes or heavy, adrenaline fueled overdrive, this track is a must for your latest playlist. Even at this early stage of their career they are very much on their way to being the best Irish band on the indie scene. Young Earth may have a secret, but it’s plain for all to see that the ingredients are all here for something special.
