Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP, Given Upwhenyoung are back with an epic new single, “Never Let Go,” released through Virgin EMI.

A massive slab of imaginative guitar-pop, the single finds the band expanding their sound. Produced by Al O’Connell  (The Big PinkSuperfood), the slow burning track features layers of chiming guitar and vocals, creating a wall of sound that beautifully compliments Aoife’s evocative lyrics. “It’s a song about mental health and hope” she explains. “It’s a message to let people know that you can share your pain with others. It’s a reminder that someone is always there for you even in the darkest times. There is always a reason to not let go.”

whenyoung are excited to also announce they have confirmed a show at New York City‘s Mercury Lounge on March 6.  The show will mark the first time the band play in NYC.  They are on at 6:30pm and tickets are available here.  The band will then head to Austin TX for this year’s SXSW —  select shows to be announced soon!  
2018 was a landmark year for the young band. They released the Given Up EP and in support performed in Dublin as part of Shane Mcgowan‘s 60th birthday celebration alongside the likes Nick Cave and Sinead O’Connor. They played a stunning set at the Other Voices festival and they’ve also supported the likes of Dream WifeThe Vaccinesand Blossoms.

Before heading stateside whenyoung will head off on a UK tour in February that will include the bands biggest headline show in London to date at the Electrowerkz.

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 became whenyoung.
