2 mins read

Substream Magazine have premiered the new music video for Late Night Swim from FOSSIL YOUTH‘s upcoming album A Glimpse Of Self Joy, slated for a November 4th 12″/CD/CS/Digital release on Takme This To Heart records! They will also be on the road this November supporting the release, dates below.

“Late Night Swim is where anxiety meets your worst fears, says singer/guitarist Scottie Noonan. “Although things may be going exactly the way you wish for them to, you find yourself questioning everything along the way, looking for anything that could be wrong in the bliss, and inadvertently ruining what you worked so hard for.”


your love like a poison
and I want it want it
your skin like a castle
and I want in want in
so let me in

dive into your dark room
swim through it for a little while
find pieces of me
that you never thought you’d ever find
you always wonder where I am and what I’m doing
you know I float around your head float around your head

castleskin you shouldn’t let me in
cause I just can’t keep you safe from me
silent swoon won’t you be my favorite moon
I’ll howl at you all night howl at you all night

I just can’t keep you safe
cause every inch of me is still reaching for your loving
I just can’t keep you safe from me

About the band:

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 closerLinger 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.
