New Young Juvenile Youth: “Her”

Young Juvenile Youth’s debut album mirror arrives today, and to celebrate the electronic duo shared a sparser cut from the album. “Her” moves away from the more delirious dance-pop of “Slapback” in favor of space. “Her” revolves around seasick electronics, a slowly mutating beat and some squiggly electronic touches lurking beneath it all. Yet the key to “Her” lies in how the singing doesn’t retreat into the space, but moves right up to the front. It gives a sense of directness, and makes the moment they start pulling bak a bit all the more forceful. Listen above.
