Years Young – Hiraeth

The alternative rock quartet from North Lincolnshire has finally released their debut EP. The 4-piece band has already earned the title ‘One of the most anticipated bands of 2015.’ If you like bands like Don Broco, Biffy Clyro and Mallory Knox, you need to listen to this album! The six-track EP has a lot of depth to it. Strong vocals, awesome chord progressions and assertive lyrics are just a few things what the EP is all about. “Hiraeth” means ‘A homesickness for a home you cannot return to, or that never was’. Opening track “Miracles” starts off pretty mellow after the first thirteen seconds, but then it fulfils your ears making you want to hear more. The lyrics: ‘Home is where the heart is while you’re running away,’ expresses that the band want their fans to think about their lives from the past, present and future. “The Sign” is a song about rebuilding. The beat throughout the whole track is powerful and memorable. With this song the band expresses how important it is to know who you are and where your life is leading to. The band has really thought of their fans and new listeners, this song is a song you can listen to and really revaluate your life. The EP is full of catchy choruses and haunting hooks, and it shows that Years Young is more than ready to take on the rock world.
