PRESS FOR THE YOUTH AND YOUNG:
“Taking the energy of Celtic rock and marrying it to the exuberance of modern Scottish indie-folk, Gestures – the debut album from Edinburgh’s The Youth And Young – proves that past comparisons to Arcade Fire aren’t all that far off the mark.” – Alan Morrison, The National
“Utilising the dual harmonies of lead singers Alice Anderson and Ryan McGlone, The Youth and Young create epic soundscapes, but aren’t afraid to veer off in other directions” – Jim Gellatly, Amazing Radio”
The dual vocals of Ryan McGlone and Alice Anderson create an immensely uplifting experience while the rest of the huge band build tracks that simply reach for the sky and don’t give til fade out.” – RaveChild Music Blog
“The debut album from The Youth and Young is a confident collection of panoramic indie-folk. Bursts of strings and impassioned vocals are contrasted with delicate acoustic guitars and intertwining harmonies, making for a record that’s both majestic and intimate, with moments that rival the euphoric lifts of groups like Frightened Rabbit and Band of Horses.” – Alan Henderson, The Gaudie.
