Delightfully uplifting and full of catchy guitar riffs, Wigan based four-piece Flechettes impress with new single ‘Chasing Youth’. Since their formation in 2019, this young and exciting band have quickly made a name for themselves booking live shows across the North of England and releasing a whole host of anthemic, classic indie tracks. A track that explores the need for positivity in the face of adversity, ‘Chasing Youth’ is a guitar heavy, indie anthem packed full of exuberance, youth and rousing lyrics.
Discussing their new single, the band’s frontman Jack explains: “This song was inspired by a situation which pushed me to choose between feeling sorry for myself, or having a laugh while I could. It’s a song about realising that while things seemed difficult, I was lucky to have the friends I have, even though lyrically it doesn’t present itself this way. I think the opening line ‘ever noticed how fast time goes when you’re in love with life’ sums it up perfectly. It’s about confronting, none of us are here forever and to enjoy every moment whilst you still can, especially whilst we’re still somewhat young, which I reiterated in the chorus with the lines ‘we’ve not got long, so get a move on’. In summary, it’s designed to pick people up and get them singing along, and hopefully, with some luck that’s what they’ll want to do.”
Indeed, such energy and spontaneity is sure to become invaluable as the world returns to normality, making it likely we will all be seeing a lot more of this young band on the live music circuit in the future.
