Italian sheogazin’ alt rockers YOUNGEST premiere new moody single & video “Lotus”

The constant mixing and matching of genres and influences over the last two decades has allowed shoegaze, grunge, alternative rock and post hardcore to form an unlikely yet complementary bond, that continues to grow and strengthen with more engaging records and bands. Our today’s guests, Milan based band YOUNGEST, runs on the pulsating drive of their high-energy and alt-emo inspirations blended with the grungy alt-rock textures from the 90s, all soaked in dreamy soundscapes, ethereal vocals and shogaze bliss. Inspired by “Supermachine” by Teenage Wrist, “Today” by Smashing Pumpkins, and “Come Down” by Gleemer, the band’s new single “Lotus” serves as the connective tissue between the aforementioned styles and promises a great new EP, coming up later in 2021.

Youngest is an alternative rock project from Milan born in early 2016 as a trio, initially inspired by bands like Title Fight, Basement, Citizen.

In 2016 Youngest issued their first EP, “We’re Made of Memories”. The following year the band changed lineup with a new drummer, Noah, and in 2017 they released “Komorebi”, via Pan Music Production and Failures for Italy and via Jawbone Records for the UK.

In 2018 Stefano joined the project and the band released their first LP “Could Never Be You”. The band joins Hero Booking’s roster and tour Italy, sharing the stage with Turnover , Can’t Swim, Dufresne, Hundredth, Slow Crush.

In 2019 Youngest starts a new writing path, experimenting with genres and letting themselves be influenced by bands like Nothing, Teenage Wrist and Whirr. They released “Ghosting” and “Slow Fade”, two songs that will be part of an EP that will be released in 2021.

“Lotus”, a third new single, will be released on November 24th on all digital platforms via Pan Music Production.

Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Pan Music Production during November 2019 in Turin, Italy.

Lotus lyrics:

Do you ever feel so bad
As if you burnt your skin?
These thoughts will not fade away
Things go like this, I know how
To feel good, to feel bad
Things go like this, I know why

I don’t know how
I don’t know why
Am I cynical or dead inside?

Between your legs
I don’t know how
This time, I feel alive

Do you ever feel like shit?
Or like you’re torn apart?
These times will not fade away

I don’t know how
I don’t know why
Am I cynical or dead inside?
Between your legs
I don’t know how
This time, I feel alive
This time, I feel alive
This time, I feel alive
Between your legs
I don’t know how
This time, I feel alive
