Years ago when I would travel to the UK trying to just meet people in the music industry I stumbled onto a band called Streetlight Youth. They couldn’t have been older than 17 or 18 and wrote some BADASS songs. Part At The Drive-In. Part power pop. It was good stuff. The whole plan of working with them kind of fell apart but apparently some of them reformed as Fervours while going to university (we call it college).
It seems as though they’ve definitely stuck with their post-punk roots throwing in splashes of percussive tapping and plucking more akin to earlier Foals and Don Caballero. Dude’s voice is still spot on though.
Check out “Fanfare.”
