We’ve been eagerly singing Yungblud praises since the Yorkshire artist made his debut nearly a full year ago with King Charles, and we’re thrilled he’s picked up so much buzz in the interim since. His rollicking music is full of fiery spirit and genre-defying verve. The 20 year old musician from England dropped a killer debut EP a few months ago. He’s since followed it up with a bold and brazen new track named 21st Century Liability, whose squishy rap rock and high voltage ferocity channels some major Beastie Boy vibes. 21st Century Liability is a rip roaring anthem from one of the brightest young rising stars in the alt landscape. Re-visit our prior Yungblud features, here.

I may not be an anarchist, but even I sometimes agree that out of chaos can come new order as people strive to achieve harmony in the face of turmoil and bedlam. In a way, some of Yungblud’s first songs have felt this way. High voltage tracks like King Charles and I Love You, Will You Marry Me were furiously clamoring strutters replete with Yungblud’s scratchy bellowing and raucous energy, but they immediately pulled us in and created a sense of triumphant solidarity. The UK artist has since released an acclaimed self-titled EP and become a much buzzworthy, noteworthy name in the alt scene. The EP, which just arrived less than two weeks ago, can be streamed and download via Soundcloud, here. It closes out with a song named Anarchist, a pop leaning, more deliberate and less cacophonously freewheeling anthem. It’s an utterly infectious EP closer from an obviously very flexible artist.

I’m still kicking myself for having had to miss Yungblud’s San Francisco debut at Popscene last year. As we predicted, the teenaged wunderkind from Yorkshire has gained a massive amount of buzz since he made his punchy roaring debut just over half a year ago with King Charles, and now the UK artist has released a self-titled debut EP! Alongside the magnificent tracks we’ve shared in the past, the five track release includes this genre defying fusion of grime, alt pop, and rock named Polygraph Eyes. With his distinctive voice, Yungblud enthralls us with a unique concoction. The song is one of his more chill and laid back offerings, despite its vibrant tempo and tightly wound splendor. The hotly tipped artist is on the road in Europe right now, but he’ll join K.Flay on tour this spring. You can purchase Yungblud’s debut EP from iTunes, here, or stream via Spotify, here.

We knew we were onto something special earlier this year when we encountered Yungblud’s cheeky roaring debut, King Charles. We immediately considered the 19 year old talent from Yorkshire a must watch artist. Dominic Harrison has since caught the attention of even more music heads and tastemakers across the world, and just as we’d predicted, his buzz level continues to rise at breakneck speed. New song Tin Pan Boy greatly reminds me of early Arctic Monkeys (still my favorite stage of Arctic Monkeys) with its sooty snarling energy, breaking beats, and jagged guitar hooks, but mixed with the yowling vigor of The Clash and some Franz Ferdinand swagger. And like every other Yungblud song we’ve encountered, it’s wildly addicting and a whole lot of swashbuckling fun. I’m still feeling totally crestfallen for having to miss Yungblud’s San Francisco debut at Popscene a couple weeks ago (my day job partners were in town), and I’m hoping 2018 will bring me a new opportunity to experience the electrifying young talent live.

There are those who seem to believe Dominic Harrison, the young 19 year old brainiac behind new UK project Yungblud, is a sonic godsend. You can count me in as one of those folks after he struck a resounding chord with the release of his debut single King Charles earlier this year. The Yorkshire artist grew up on a diet of The Clash, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan, so it comes as no surprise that his music is boisterous and energetic with a classic feel. New single ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me’ is a high voltage strutter, an early Arctic Monkeys meets Palma Violets-like bellowing, thundering tidal wave of incendiary rock. Yungblud says of the firecracker: 
“It’s a twisted fairytale about two young people in love that got completely fucked over… His graffiti proposal overlooks the entire city, which ended in her death and was lit up as an ‘iconic piece of art’ overlooking Sheffield. He was left with nothing." ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me’ is out now via Locomotion. Grab it, here

It’s been a very long day. Heck, it’s been a very long week and it’s not even close to being over. Fortunately for us, we have Yungblud to energize us with a cheeky snarling, punchy roaring debut. The Yorkshire born artist has also premiered an audacious video to go with the raucous eruption of pop rock and alt rock on King Charles. 19 year old Dominic Harrison, who grew up on a diet of The Clash, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan, has made an intrepid and dauntless entrance with the fierce infectious, explosive catapulting single. Yungblud has also become renowned back at home for his captivating live performances, not a surprise at all considering the sheer vitality that clobbers us on King Charles. The single channels both Arctic Monkeys and Spoon, with a gutsy groove. King Charles can also be streamed off Spotify, here.
