Yung A Youthful Dream Limited Coloured Vinyl LP + Download

What are the dreams of a youth that never makes time to rest? For 21-year-old Yung frontman Mikkel Holm Silkjar, a Danish DIY figurehead who has left a catalogue of cassettes and self-produced songs in his wake, the goal seemed to be recording and living as fast as possible. Writing and performing songs filled with gritty guitar and driving rhythms that snap like a live wire, he's been busy channelling the electric drive of youth, creating brief, flashing sonic portraits of his life in Aarhus, the country's gritty, industrial second city. That makes the music on the reflective A Youthful Dream, the debut album from Yung, such a revelation. Angst makes space for wisdom, youthful exuberance begins channelling road-tested experience, and a blur of basement shows and self-produced bromides becomes something more. DIY doesn't mean unrefined, it just means personal. And at a point where inertia made way for introspection, Silkjar showcased a new degree of songwriting craft and and sonic experimentation and a new perspective on everyday life and young adulthood.
