The NME nailed it when they threw young Kate Bush and The Jesus and Mary Chain references at this London two-piece. Within seconds of Claire's vocals meeting Paolo's fuzzy-guitar rush in the song "Pale" and I was -- pardon the play on words -- in love with Young Romance.
What a glorious cut! The sort of song that soars and makes the hairs on this jaded old music fan's arms stand up again.
Young Romance have got an upcoming gig in London for those of you in the UK. Details here.
In the meantime, play the videos, spin the cuts, and look for the out-of-print single. Details here.
