YOUTH KILLED IT
A meeting three years ago in a studio in Norwich, resulted in a united front of millennial madness. Introduced to each other through their mutual love of music; they bought a van the same age as themselves, named it Dorian and headed out on the road. Combining their razor tongue wit, cheeky bravado and undeniably danceable licks to form indie rock band Youth Killed It.
The band put together two EP’s entitled “The Sad Boys Club” and “The Happy Girls Club”, and what can only be described as a chance meeting with Rude Records, they snapped the band up for a two album deal. They boxed up the EP’s and put them out as the riff fuelled album we now know as “Modern Bollotics” (2017) and just over a year later followed the indie focused “What’s so Great, Britain?” (2018).They have since moved forward as an independent outfit and are now focused on a single driven ethos.
Having toured the UK and Europe with The Frights, The LaFontaines and MassMaticks, and many of their own shows, a Youth Killed It gig involves 100% crowd participation and gets better the more you drink or the less you think. You won’t see a wall of death or circle pit, but you will see conga lines, dad dancing and anything else that is shamelessly brilliant including front man Jack Murphy’s charisma and charm between songs. Its function is to have fun, alienate fans from any outdoor judgement, let them scream, shout and do whatever is contrary to the social norm at a live show.
