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”.
The brainchild of frontman Kit Conway, Stello is a band for nighthawks at the diner and quiet walks in the city.
This year, Stello is releasing at least four new triplets. The series began with an immersive, experiential set called Triplet No. 1: Apollo, which dropped on December 1st, 2017 and was met with glowing reviews. EARMILK called Apollo "masterfully crafted," swooning "Stello shows us that great musicianship is far from dead." Kings of AR advised industry leaders take note, saying 'Stello should be on your radar.' And Indie Shuffle said the opening track is 'sultry, smooth and some other word that begins with an s.'
Triplet No. 2: Desire marked a major shift in Stello's sonic palette. Desire leans into psychedelic funk, weaving dance grooves and synthesizers through a dreamy soundscape. Lyrically, the songs focus on the many shapes of internal desire: the quiet agony of boredom; the urgency of infatuation.
