The Underground Youth are one of the reasons I started this blog.. a Manchester band that is (for whatever weird reason) largely ignored by the music scene here.
I want that to change. You only need to delve a little into an ever-growing back catalogue to know we’re missing out. This band was SWAYS before SWAYS even existed.
Comprising of Craig Dyer, Olya Dyer and Thomas Josef E – The Underground Youth are clearly influenced by the likes of Jesus and The Mary Chain, Joy Division and Slowdive. A personal favourite is Midnight Lust, a dark brooding bitch of a number. I’m genuinely excited to share them with you.
