Who, what, whenyoung?

whenyoung are an Irish band I’ve recently discovered on Spotify. Yes yes I know, Spotify. It works, who knew? Anyway, they’ve only four tracks up there for us to hear but for the most part, this indie/punk trio are pretty good. They also have a cover of ‘Fairytale Of New York’ up there that features Gabriel Bruce, the Leonard Cohen sound-a-like. That’s actually harsh on Bruce, his two records ‘Love In Arms’ and ‘Come All Sufferers‘ are actually good enough! whenyoung come from Limerick and ship themselves between there, Dublin and London to record and perform. Two tracks, ‘Pretty Pure’ and ‘Actor’ are really catchy and for a group just starting out, they seem to have their sound nailed down. Go give them a listen and if you don’t like them then stop taking advice from strangers.

Oh, and for any London fans reading this, they play at the Windmill this coming Saturday for their It’s Always Sunny On Paddy’s Night event. Check out whenyoung on Facebook here. ‘Pretty Pure’ is below.
