Based in Oxford, Youthmovies have been kicking around the underground circuit for what seems like an age now. Adored by fans and critics alike, Youthmovies create a practically undefinable sound with guitars, bass, drums, vocals, trumpet and synth. Melding a multitude of elements including post-hardcore, math-rock, post-rock, prog, electro and at times sheer pop songwriting, they push boundaries by making some of the most forward thinking music around. Having released records with Fierce Panda and Vacuous Pop, the band are now signed to Drowned In Sound (home to Martha Wainwright, Brett Anderson, Jeniferever, Metric...) and release their long awaited debut album 'Good Nature' this month. Youthmovies are incredibly good live (as tours with 65daysofstatic, Foals and many more have proved), so don't miss out on what is sure to be a special performance by a special band on the last date of their tour.
"Good Nature is thick with memorable pop... It's a thrilling journey, revealing something fresh each time, and while there are passages when you can compare Youthmovies with other bands, ultimately they're indefinable and incomparable. 9/10"
"Sinister, challenging and fascinating, 'Good Nature' is surely one of the most original and interesting British albums that 2008 will see."
"...this LP could potentially be an album of the year. Ballsy, massively ambitious, exuberant and endlessly fascinating, it could just take over the world, if only enough people learn how to speak its language"
Loud & Quiet
"Youthmovies are clever, original - and sadistically unpredictable."
"Like a post-hardcore brainstorming session on where music should go next."
