If you’re looking for mesmerizing indie pop songs to dream away to, The Haunted Youth are your kind of band. Perfectly putting the feeling of being young in uncertain yet hopeful times into music and lyrics, they wrap their songs in a rich and dreamy sound echoing that of acclaimed bands such as DIIV, Slowdive, Beach Fossils or even The Cure.
Debut single ‘Teen Rebel’ took off immediately, effortlessly sailing the radio waves in Belgium and abroad. The equally successful follow-up ‘Coming Home’ even attracted the attention of the legendary English magazine NME. And what’s even more: both songs crossed the Atlantic without effort, sparking interest in the US as well. ‘Teen Rebel’ made the front page of the highly influential Consequence of Sound, while ‘Coming Home’ was named Song of the day by leading indie radio station KEXP, who called it an ‘irresistible end-of-summer anthem’. Most bands need a lot more to open doors like that.
If 2021 was a dream year for The Haunted Youth, 2022 is destined to be a triumph. The Haunted Youth write songs to dream away to, and sure have reasons tot start dreaming themselves.
