Exactly one year away from the release of their latest EP “The Garden Of Biological Machines” and over two years since their acclaimed record “We’re Drowning In Slowmotion“, Göteborg heart-rending post hardcore maestros from YOUNG MOUNTAIN are back with a new track, their contribution to the new split record with Stockholm based VIVRE SA VIE and Germany’s LA PETITE MORT / LITTLE DEATH, and we’re thrilled to premiere it right here! The new effort once again proves that the mixture of refinement and dissonance can be somehow more unsettling than if the band was to go full on into violent sonic territories. There’s something monumental about this band and the balance that YOUNG MOUNTAIN maintain throughout is what makes it work.
YOUNG MOUNTAIN bring in 2 new tracks to this compilation, both of them dealing with issues that define them, veganism and politics.
The band commented:
”We wanted to create something alive, something natural. We decided to just meet up in our rehearsal for a few days and just jam together and soon enough we had taken a new shape. During the last year we have suffered a lot as a band and individuals which have formed a new sort of musical entity in us. In the same wave of events two of our members departed and two came to join us, Jakob (drums) and John (bass).
Both of them have been close friends of ours for years before, so their entry in the band came smooth.
As with everything, the hardships and the exchange of members we have gone through a new angle of musicianship. The two songs that we will release are a taste of what’s to come, a trace back to our roots as much as they lead the way to our future sound and the coming full length record. We, with these songs, present to you a current motion of ever-changing pace, a feeling of ambivalence along with some sense of direction.”
