Whenyoung’s debut fuses punk-edged riffs with pop-hooked vocals
FFO: Floral Scene, Superfood, Sea Girls
Label: Hate Hate Hate Records
Fusing punk-edged production in the punchy drums and pointed riffage, with catchy, pop-hooked vocals, Limerick-born and London-based Whenyoung release their debut single ‘Actor’; a shiny indie-rock staple that is at both times gritty and endearing. Leading the punk-inflected charge are the vocals and bass riffs of Aoife Power, which drive the track with a certain heart-in-the-mouth confidence and dizzying determination.
About the track, Whenyoung say, “’Actor’ is about contorting your character to fit into a disfigured view of the perfect.”
