The Underground Youth, Manchester-born, Berlin-based group led by Craig Dyer are sharing For You Are The One, the latest single to be lifted from their forthcoming album, The Falling due out 12th March on Fuzz Club Records. Their new record sees the band trade their visceral post-punk melancholy for a more refined and stripped-back sound. Craig spoke with The Fountain about the new music and plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what can we expect from For You Are The One?
I saw one write up describe it as “a whiskey-soaked sing-along”, which made me laugh. I don’t know if that’s accurate, but I guess there is something of a drunken folk feel to the track.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
How about, “a whiskey-soaked sing-along”
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release, I note an album?
This is the second single to be released from our new album, titled The Falling and due for release on 12th March. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we’re unable to plan a tour for the release, but we have some other ideas in mind and as soon as we can get back out on the road, we will be!
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
Honestly, this has been the longest break we’ve had without a tour since we started. We’d look forward to playing anywhere right now! A prestigious amphitheatre or the back of a cramped and sweaty pub, anywhere.
