Youth Club – Breathe

“And I feel like I can’t breathe. I’m underwater losing time”

It’s that time of year again when we’re overwhelmed by a surplus of indie-pop/rock summery songs. As people grab their wellies, daisy-chain headbands and quirky plastic asos sunglasses for that most authentic of festival looks, music moguls such as ourselves direct their ears towards a whole host of high-tempo, guitar driven tracks to get them in the mood for three days of intermittent showers, warm beer and more great music.

So allow us to point you in the direction of “Breathe”, the latest single from Southend-On-Sea hexad Youth Club’s Brothers EP. The EP dropped back in February but this track is getting a timely June release for obvious reasons. Energetic and explosive, “Breathe” will fast become a staple of any self-respecting alternative music fan’s playlist for sound tracking those long, sun-soaked drives. It immediately has a kick before dropping into a shimmering slower section, allowing for the track to build back up into a full-bodied scorcher. Just when you think it’s all over, the six-piece still have time for one last burst, epitomising how much energy this track oozes.
