bright new things #1 Your Twenties

First in the series of "quite good them, like" is the colour coordinated Your Twenties.
Here's the brilliant (if not slightly nausea inducing) video to their single Caught Wheel.

And here’s a little bit of background on Your Twenties, a band who describe their influences as long lunches, Elastica, pastel colours and Brian Wilson’s mental illness.
They consist of five very interlinked members. The lead singer and songwriter is Gabriel Stebbing, better known - for now - as the bassist from Metronomy, James on guitar, on keys one-man-prodigy Charlie Alex March, Robin is on drums and they’re completed by Michael, Gabriel’s brother who was pressured into quitting uni to join the band. This debut single was produced by Joe Mount - Mr Metronomy himself.

Playing live this month in London town, their debut, and very beautifully packaged, 7" is out now through
