Youth Lagoon

Sunopsis: The XX meets Washed Out

I hate dislike Pitchfork. I think I’ve made that clear.

But every once and a while they get sent an album by someone who deserves recognition. Youth Lagoon is that someone.

It’s shoegaze, bedroom, melodic fun  – but most importantly, it’s pop at its best. Drums kick in when you want them and melodies go where you expect them.

Together, Youth Lagoon’s songs fulfill the desires you have been waiting for since Two Door dropped ‘Tourist History’.

’17’ is the perfect example of this indie pop bliss.

Listen with little expectation, leave with high hopes. Youth Lagoon’s debut results in unexpected fulfillment, and unexpected satisfaction.

    Couldn’t agree with you more. This is a remarkable album, very nostalgic.
