About

Young Digerati are the architects of a synth-heavy, Anglo-centric, (small “r”) romantic sound that could have been built only in San Francisco (or in 1985). So it's no shock they’ve already scored airplay on their hometown’s influential Live 105 - or that they've been booked on the station’s BFD Festival and on DJ Aaron Axelsen’s legendary “Britpop” night Popscene.

The prototypical Young D tune features lushly programmed keyboards and guitars, layered over live drums and bass. It inevitably stars a girl whom the band clearly will never get, and guys with whom they’ll never quite fit in. “Why do the girls I like move to the South to start a brand new life?” That’s the ego-crushing query that crops up in the very first line of the debut single, The Dauphin. The band’s expanding cycle of songs consistently and un-self-consciously calls to mind the Pet Shop Boys collaborating with the Postal Service on the soundtrack to a lost John Hughes film. They're currently writing, recording, and performing gigs on the West Coast and around the Bay Area.
