So Young Issue Nineteen
So here we are, our last magazine of the year. Issue Nineteen sees out 2018 with The Orielles on the cover. The Halifax band have recently become a four piece and we gave them a call to talk about the new dynamic, the reaction to their debut album and channelling the festival vibes on their new single. Stockholm’s Viagra Boys have taken the UK by storm in recent months and we caught up with them at their London headline show to chat about the influence of Mariah Carey on their formation. Baxter Dury has recently returned to our speakers as B.E.D, a collaborative effort with Ètiene De Crécy and Delilah Holliday. We caught up with Baxter on his way to pick up a vegan bagel and discussed blowing budgets, Heavenly Records and what he thinks of the UK’s new bands. Staying in London via Limerick, whenyoung have released their debut EP on Virgin Records and we quizzed them on the importance of their new home in the capital. Chilli Jesson has been a staple feature in previous issues, whether it was with his previous band, Palma Violets or when we introduced his new group, Crewel Intentions 12 months ago. One year on, Crewel Intentions have released their first two singles and it seemed the perfect time to catch up.
We speak to Saul of Insecure Men who’s just secured his first permanent residence in four years. He talks to us about the new Insecure Men album and spills a little on what’s next for the Fat Whites. Yak are another band who have just signed to major label, Virgin Records. We meet frontman, Oli Burslem in East London where he opens up about how the new album let him get ‘emo’ for the first time. Lady Bird are from Tunbridge Wells, the Kent band released their debut EP under Slaves’ label, Girl Fight Records. We sent some questions to the trio via email and they were kind enough to reply extensively. To finish the issue, Sheffield lads Drenge reach rare territory for an indie band… Album three. We interview them about what’s to come and how things have become more complex. And staying north, we speak to Manchester’s wild boys, The Starlight Magic Hour. They’re a band who take their music, appearance and story telling very seriously. We dig in to all of the above. Who Are You? introduces some of our new favourites from the underground. This time around you’ll meet Italia 90, Just Mustard, Desire, Cruelty and more.
