After battling the unattainable with the 2015 EP Intertwined With You, Fossil Youth are back and at it again with their new full length A Glimpse Of Self Joy. AGOSJ not only works well as individual songs but, also tells one cohesive story that takes you on a journey from the opening chords of the contagious sing along Watercolor Daydream to the final ring out of the epic closer Linger In My Head, where singer/guitarist Scottie Noonan laments over and over again, “You don’t need me at all.”

Noonan attacks the initial roadblocks, relapses, fond recollections, reminiscing and ultimately, the final resolution of a toxic relationship. Throughout the album, there is consistency in storytelling, that when listened to in sequential order, will bring a sense of apathy to the listener. Personal yet still universal, AGOSJ brings urgency in its songwriting. Noonan persists, “Although you know you shouldn’t, you’re replaying the best memories you have in the back of your head.”

For the recording of the album, Fossil Youth tapped producer Jay Maas (Citizen, The Menzingers, Somos) and headed to Boston, MA. You can hear hints of the laidback groove of Turnover melding with the quiet/loud dynamics of Balance & Composure. Songs like Minco & Sitting In A Spinning Room showcase the bands penchant for slowing things down and compelling the listener to firmly grasp every melody, while songs like Forest Eyes and Late Night Swim hit you right in the face and force you to bop your head in agreeance with the beat.
