Your Twenties

Your Twenties Blur Send-up
Your Twenties take a couple cues from Blur on their second single: Stephen Street produced it, and the cover owes more than a little to the back cover of The Great Escape. That’s about where the Blur comparisons stop though. The band which started off as a side project of Metronomy‘s Gabriel Stebbing is apparently no longer a side project with Stebbing having left his former band to put his full effort to Your Twenties. With their prog-ish, yet tightly wound, harmony laden pop Your Twenties remind me of  a more straightforward Field Music or Sea and Cake. Like both of those bands, they seem to have a knack for mixing Yes with XTC. Your Twenties two singles to date are slices of undeniable pop brilliance.  An album is apparently in the offing , can’t wait!

    Neon Gold has been on fire lately. I really like Wolf Giant too.
