The Underground Youth (Fuzz Club) share new video & UK/EU tour dates‏

September 9, 2015



Out on the 4th / 7th of September

After releasing their last LP, Haunted (Fuzz Club Records, 4th of May), The Underground Youth are embarking on a long tour of the UK and Europe. For the occasion they are sharing a video for “The Girl Behind”, a spectral lullaby echoing Cocteau Twins and Joy Division.


Recorded between August 2014 and January 2015, Haunted marks a distancing from the Psychedelic atmospheres of the origins to a more radical 1980s Noise and Post-Punk sound, which was already palpable in their last EP, Beautiful & Damned. However, as for their previous releases, they have been faithful to their key purposes and DIY aesthetics and have not lost their unique taste for Pop melodies, which make them so special. It was religiously home recorded in their Manchester home-studio, with the contribution of producer James Shillito and it is the damning evidence that The Underground Youth are one of the few guitar bands to be able to craft beautiful songs and mesmerise crowds, using such simple and spontaneous recording techniques.

A declared Bob Dylan’s fan, Craig Dyer is once again exploring literature through music. To put it with his own words: “the intention was to create a dark and unsettling musical atmosphere to host the lyrical content, each song the detailing of a character’s struggle with a different affliction. Like a series of intrusive nightmares”.
