Tough Love Records is the sound of a burgeoning youth culture, hosting a bragworthy multitude of bands (the majority barely out of their teens) that take genres we’ve grown up with, throw them into the woodchipper and paint something new with the debris.  Four Danish youngsters known as Yung now join their ‘buzz band’ ranks with Yvette, CYMBALS and Girls Names.

First single Nobody Cares seesaws between a breezy Johnny Marr-tinged sway and a fuel-injected fuzz punk blast.  Too fast for a slow dance, too pretty for the pit, but a perfect balance of ‘all of the above’ to keep us listening.  It’s hard not to hear the crooked-smiled charm of The Replacements as they scream “Nobody cares” on repeat, and despite the melancholy implications of that phrase, it’s almost impossible to share that sentiment with guitar riffs like those.

I’m expecting a big 2015 for Yung.  Only 100 copies on red wax are being offered.  What ya waitin’ fer?  Take it, it’s yours.

The Details

Danish four-piece, Yung will release their international debut EP, Alter, on March 2nd through Tough Love. The 6 tracks present a brash and persuasive slice of Nordic punk, with a rare sense of rhythm and melody bands that recalls the Replacements, Jay Retard and Ty Segall. Alter is released on limited edition 12" vinyl and digital formats.

NOTE TO COLLECTORS - 100 copies will be available on transparent red vinyl ONLY from the Tough Love Store.

Price $13.55
