Few bands can boast the kind of striking musical identity as whenyoung. The trio – singer/bassist Aoife Power, guitarist Niall Burns, and drummer Andrew Flood – make some of alternative music’s most compelling new sounds; a soaring, stunning, but still singalong take on musical anthemia, that fuses the storyteller’s nature of their home country of Ireland with the effortless cool of the London scene they now call home.
Following their recent singles ‘Heaven on Earth’ and their cover of the Cranberries classic ‘Dreams’, whenyoung release their new EP ‘Given Up’ through Virgin EMI. Printed on 10” blue vinyl the release continues on from their prior 7” singles themed on the primary colours that are so part of the band’s aesthetic identity. Whenyoung share “our EP is a bitesize presentation of who we are, our place in the world and where we’re going”.
