The Youth Play unleashes a riotous kaleidoscope with ‘If We Just Ever Were’

The Youth Play is back with a bang, announcing their latest release, ‘If We Just Ever Were.’ This powerful track marks a bold evolution in their sound, diving headfirst into grittier territories. Kicking off with a fierce drum line, the song quickly immerses listeners in a whirlwind of slightly tarnished guitar tones and a fast-moving bass line. The dynamic riffs blend into one another, creating a thunderous kaleidoscope of distortion and sparks. The Youth Play masterfully captures sonic intensity, solidifying themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the music scene.

Reflecting on the song’s creation, the band shared, “The song was written in the context of a big city like London, where its energy and people can sometimes be overwhelming, making you feel captive of a cycle revolving around “making it” or being successful.

Emerging from London with an alternative blend of shoegaze influences and dreamy tones, The Youth Play has spent years crafting a unique, otherworldly sound and delivering electrifying live performances. These years of refinement culminated in the release of their first single, ‘After a Moment’, last summer. Following this, their debut EP ‘Wildflowers’ showcased the band’s continuous transformation, with tracks touching on themes of time, lost love, and the deterioration of our natural world. As they prepare to release ‘If We Just Ever Were,’ The Youth Play stands ready to captivate audiences once again, promising even more exciting developments in their musical journey.
