“Perfecting a sharp, trashy take on garage-pop, the band live by an all-killer, no-filler ethos” Clash
“They’re young, but all their lights are on” Classic Rock
Glasgow-based Irish garage-pop band Young Aviators have unveiled a hilarious satirical video for their stellar track ‘We’ve Got Names For Folk Like You’. The track, available now, is taken from their recently released debut album Self Help and pulls no punches – calling out worlds hypocrites and dishonest careerists.
The video shows the band presenting their own 80s shopping channel, pedalling everything from toasters, to juicers, to machine guns with armour piercing bullets. A sardonic take on modern culture, the band have their tongues firmly in their cheeks, whilst making an honest and scathing look at on media and consumption.
Young Aviators’ album Self Help is a bold statement – lyrically poignant and heartfelt, yet with enough groove to fill the UKs indie dancefloors. The songs on their debut album Self Help are written from the heart and born out of the post-graduate experience of debt and poverty. The album was released by Electric Honey Records, the label that launched the careers of the likes of Biffy Clyro, Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol and Teenage Fanclub.
The band have just returned from a sellout tour of Europe, alongside one of Germany’s biggest indie bands Sportfreunde Stiller, as well as Scottish dates with Travis.
Both ‘We’ve Got Names For Folk Like You’ and the album Self Help are available now.
