Young Things / Bio

young things - Heroes. Scoundrels. No accounts. Swell guys. Lousy Lovers. Great Americans. CMJ. NXNE. SXSW. Etc. Etc. Mike plays guitar but not very well. Josh likes Smashing Pumpkins. Jon plays drums but not as well as he thinks. Neil is good for a drink but better for a harmony. We miss New York when we’re away so it’s a good thing we don’t travel too much. We met in London and, every now and then, we’ll talk about that. We sound like your favorite band if they had never recorded that one album you just didn’t like.

Our debut album is out June 4th and will be available worldwide via Battle Records - HELLO LOVE // GOODBYE SEXUAL Produced by Lenny Kaye and Mike Comparetto. Mixed by Vance Powell. Featuring Har Mar Superstar. Early reviews have been incredibly positive. Here are some of our favorite quotes:
This NEW YORK band decided to coat eardrums with the stuff tourists hope to be sniffing and scraping off their clothes for weeks after their return home. The Young Things sound big and clean and like something that you can't just absorb in one sitting. Then Har Mar Superstar pops up in 'Goodbye Sexual' and it's like the masturbating worm in the candied apple • Vice

Hello Love // Goodbye Sexual is a bouncy ride of exuberant and artistic rock that harkens back to strong Britpop influences, without losing the unabashed feeling of rocking out in an underground music hall in the East Village • athousandguitars.com

This is what I’m talking about. Loud, rough, and fuzzed out, with these really likable lyrics –the kind that just say it right – and somehow underneath it all still manage to sound vocally like early Beatles running rampid in the city night • alancross.ca

Young Things' musical heart lies--in a time when "New York music" was something sweatier and a good deal less precious than what's come to represent the city in recent years • John Norris • Noise Vox/MTV
