The Young Things Breathe Some Life Into Modern Rock

Last Friday Brooklyn's The Grand Victory hosted some of the best new music you may not know about courtesy of the Northside Music Festival. The show's headliner was the infamous Har Mar Superstar, but some great talent emerged from bands like Purple, Spires, and The Young Things.



I was lucky enough to grab a drink with Har Mar Superstar as well as The Young Things' drummer, Jon LaPrade


The Young Things are on their way to becoming a major force within their genre. Somewhere between this band melting my face at The Grand Victory and their manager revealing some wild stories, these guys infiltrated my headspace and won't leave it alone. Their lyrics are well crafted and highly original, cutting at times but humorous at others. They employ heavy guitar riffs into their fast-paced, in-your-face songs in a way that is reminiscent of a different age. Their old school brand of loud as hell rock 'n' roll is invigorating and refreshing, especially live, and gives this author faith that somehow, somewhere, they still make rockstars like they used to. They recently released their first studio album Hello Love // Goodbye Sexual, but here's an exclusive download of the title track which features the band's touring buddy Har Mar Superstar.
