Single released 18th October 2010
on One Bird Records
Youthless are a Portugal-based (and NYC/London-born) two-piece who are currently bathing in a sea of praise following a storming appearance at In The City in Manchester. The band comprise drum, synth and vocal extraordinaire Alex Klimovitsky and Sebastiano 'the riff machine' Ferranti.
Their mix of garage-rock and dance - with just two bodies at their disposal - proved one of the festival's biggest breakthroughs. Youthless have previously reached number four on Portuguese MTV, and supported The Horrors and Crystal Castles. They make a snappy, dancey racket somewhere between Male Bonding, T. Rex and DFA 1979, using two voices, a drum kit, a keyboard and a bass guitar hooked up to some 12 pedals.
'Golden Age' is available to download from good digital outlets, and the screen print (designed by Secretly Swedish) is available to order now from One Bird's online store at http://onebirdrecords.bigcartel.com/product/limited-edition-youthless-screen-print - all orders include a free download of the single.
BBC Manchester: "Youthless's swashbuckling enthusiasm was so infectious that the band's urging of the audience to clamber onto the ceiling of Umbro Design Studio was tentatively explored as a genuine possibility. Proving there are a thousand new bass guitar noises to be made, Youthless were a lo-fi, hi-impact smash."
CMU: "It seems the Portugese go for a blend of garage-rock and disco that knows its way around a cowbell. And I see no reason why they shouldn't."
Artrocker: "Youthless are anything but; I want to take pills in an indie-electro club and blow my paper-round wage on cheap lager."
Drowned In Sound: "It is two minutes and nineteen seconds of pure larks."
Jon Hillcock: "Fresh"
