whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar), Andrew Flood (Drums). Their story started in Limerick...three underage teenagers met for the first time after sneaking into Costello's Tavern: the only bar in town that floated their musical tastes. After bonding over cheap vodka and the sound of The Velvet Underground, they began playing music together and moved to Dublin to seek some big city excitement. Developing their sound, still with a DIY approach, the band moved to London in 2017 to become whenyoung.
Following on from their captivating singles 'Actor' and 'Pretty Pure', whenyoung have released their latest track 'Heaven On Earth' through Virgin EMI. Showcasing the band's ability to match up melody with guitar bite, 'Heaven On Earth' is a huge powerhouse of a tune. Singer Aoife Power's attitude soaked vocals soar over a snaking bassline, jangly guitar riff and powerful drums, all culminating in a massive chorus.
2018 has already been a landmark year for the young band. It's seen them perform in Dublin as part of Shane MacGowan's 60th birthday celebration alongside the likes of Nick Cave and Sinead O'Connor. They've supported Dream Wife, Declan McKenna, The Vaccines and Peace. Not a band to rest on their laurels they've got a packed summer of festival appearances including Latitude, Kendal Calling and Bestival as well as heading out on tour later this year.
