A Youthful Dream Is Out On June 10th Via Fat Possum Records.
Danish punks Yung, and one of Overblown’s favourite bands of 2015, have announced the release of their debut international album. The record will be called A Youthful Dream and will be out via Fat Possum on June 10th. ‘Pills’ serves as the first single from the record, and, it must be said, is quite a departure from their last couple of EPs. Gone are the razor sharp guitars, and youthful angst replaced by a more restrained, thoughtful approach. Yung remain awesome.
“For me, Yung has always equalled total freedom,” says Mikkel. “I don’t want Yung to be a band that you can put certain labels on. I wish for it to be a project that can principally go in any given direction.”
