Interview With Young Romance
FUZZILY-LAYERED LOVE, DOUBT AND DISLOCATION
Tell your brain-cavity to alert you eye-sockets and your taste-buds because the new EardrumsPop release is upon us, lapping at our startled faces like an enthusiastic puppy.
This time around, the featured band is Young Romance, from London. The duo write about love, doubt and dislocation, wrapping up their words in layers of fuzzy distortion. Paolo and Claire live together, write together, finish each other’s sentences and second-guess what the other’s going to say next. Sweet, charming, funny and entirely self-contained, they can bicker and joke with each other for hours on end, splendidly isolated as the world rushes on all about them. Paolo talks about wanting their songs to capture the rush of feeling something for the very first time, which – I guess – is what you’re doing right now.
Anyway, check out these photos and download Break My Heart By Morning here for less than the price on an inane grin. You can download the whole package – including the digital artwork and two other tracks – from EardrumsPop here.
