|Young Rival Interior Light Limited Pink/Blue Vinyl LP
Toronto - Young Rival released their first piece of new music today since 2012’s Stay Young. The three piece known for their Nuggets-era blend of rock have emerged with an incredible new track, “Interior Light”. “Interior Light” is also the title track from the band’s forthcoming album out October 16th. Interior Light will be Young Rival’s first release on new label home Paper Bag Records.
To coincide with the release of their new album Young Rival will head out on a full North American tour with label mates Born Ruffians. Working with producer and Hamilton native Graham Walsh—whose work they had admired on records by Viet Cong, Metz and Alvvays —Young Rival never stopped ripping at the seams of these songs, as though figuring out what made them tick. Interior Light doesn’t sound like the culmination of ten years’ worth of hard work. Instead, it sounds like a new start: a springboard for further experimentation and exploration. “We listened to a lot of Roy Orbison and the Everly Brothers, stuff like that," says the band's Aron D'Alesio. "We brought in some psych elements as well. So ‘croon psych’ became a term we were throwing around at each other in the studio, like Sinatra dropping acid with Deerhunter.” Formed in 2007, they’ve been highly praised for some of the best visual accompaniments produced by a band in recent history- with music video’s “Black Is Good” reaching well over a million views and “Two Reasons” close to a million.
