The Youth — I'll Call Your Bluff / You've Done Me Wrong
(State THS-016, 2014, 7")

by Henry Schneider, Published 2014-10-08

I'll Call Your Bluff / You've Done Me Wrong Cover artFormed about two years ago, this young Danish foursome is getting noticed for their 60s beat-pop-garage band sound. Back in June Jesper Jensen (guitar, vocals), Lasse Tarp (guitar, vocals), David Peter Jørgensen (bass guitar, vocals), and Sune Christian Thomsen (drums, percussion) entered the studio to pound their way through two testosterone-laden teenage angst songs about struggling relationships for their second single. Staying with the tried and true I-IV-V-I rock 'n' roll chord progression The Youth have produced original music that harkens back to rock’s roots. Lasse’s gritty vocals provide just the right edge to the songs and Jesper’s guitar artistry captures the essence of garage rock. The flip side “You’ve Done Me Wrong” has a bit of a pop-psych vibe to it. If they had added an electric jug for percussion, this could have been a Thirteenth Floor Elevators tune. Both songs have a great grasp of melody and I can easily visualize these being crowd pleasers in a club. Hopefully their next release will be a full album.
