New Young Juvenile Youth: “Youth”

Wow, that’s a lot of youth!

The fidgety electronic-pop duo return with a plinky-plonky number centered on inevitable farewells, and the attempt to make those fleeting moments of connection last as long as possible. The vocals are, as they tend to be in the outfit’s music, the central point of intrigue, moving between monotone and more dramatic backing vocals that already sound like they are vanishing. The music, meanwhile, is the perfect nervy backdrop for it, chilly and sparse enough so that the singing has room to shine (and mutate). And serving as co-producer for this number is Magical Mistakes, aka Erik Luebs, which is about as neat a credit you can get. Listen above.
