DOWNLOAD: Young Boys - Love Hits (MP3)

Young Boys

After a 7" in 2011 and a couple tracks released online last year, Brooklyn's Young Boys are set to release their debut album, New York Sun, next week (2/26). The quartet make gloomy, martial-beat post-punk with equal helpings of dissonance and melody. If you like Cold Cave or Merchandise (or '80s stuff like Lords of the New Church and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry) they are worth checking out. You can stream the entire album for the first time below and its mopey/catcy track "Love Hits" is downloadable above.

Young Boys have a couple local shows coming up. They play Saturday (2/23) at Death by Audio with You, Ritual Howls and Faten Kanaan; then their official album release party happens at Glasslands on March 3 with Xray Eyeballs and DJ sets by Brandon of Crocodiles and Punks on Mars. Advance tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.

i agree with all these comments.
they look like they are trying WAY too hard.

and then forgot they had to actually write songs.
but good ones.

instead it's a bad version of the vandelles.
which is funny since the vandelles are a bad version of the vandelles now.

zing.

I love Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, but please just categorize this as semi-adult contemporary.

By the way -- from Brooklyn, born & raised in Boise, Idaho.

If you say you like this band or even search for them on the internet, does the FBI pay you a visit? That's a great marketing scheme, boys.

Wow, so many haters and I don't see why. Awesome stuff, saw them open for Crocodiles last year. Hard-edged post-punk revival sound, take it or leave it!
