Young Juvenile Youth

Returning for what has seemingly become an annual appearance in this column, Young Juvenile Youth are back with a new single, ‘Slapback’.

The rate of their releases has been fairly slow since 2015 – but the long gaps between new tracks is partly what creates the rush of excitement that makes us put them in the Approved slot (almost) every single time.

Their music has always had a bit of a 90s slant, though tracks like 2015’s ‘Animation’ and last year’s ‘Youth’ were pretty laidback affairs. This time, something more upbeat.

Ushering in news of the release of their debut album, ‘Mirror’, out on 22 Nov, ‘Slapback’ is a warped, adrenaline-filled take on R&B, with an appropriately migraine-inducing video to join it. For all of its many twists, it remains pleasingly minimal, while vocalist Yuki’s nonchalant delivery helps to ground it.
