Discovery: The Old Youths

The Old Youths are an indie rock duo from Swindon whose haunting new single Yesterday Never Knows is seeped in nostalgia and defiance.

By Graeme Smith

Yesterday Never Knows has a classic British indie feel to it but what sets it apart in the genre is its well-observed lyrics that speak to a sense of unique identity and breaking the mould. For a duo, they make a lot of noise too and the track’s complex arrangement feels like it’s being delivered by a full band.

The Old Youths are Joshua Weaver and Lucas Persin, who first started performing music together in the early years of secondary school. Fans of The Arctic Monkeys and Oasis should definitely check them out.
