Review: Youth Killed It 'Welcome To The Happy Girl's Club'

Youth Killed It are a Brit-Pop quintet with a little bit of sass and a lot of punch.

The First track ‘Molly’ is very love-able with catchy vocals and memorable riffs. It’s a perfect example of what the band offer. The band on a whole are very reminiscent of young Artic Monkeys or The Wombats. This kind of Brit-Pop needs to make a full return and become the next wave of British Punk-Rock.

The Second track is just as powerful with scratchy guitar chords surrounding the drums and beautifully stunning riff that seals the deal. The vocals do not feature the most amazing lyricism but it as a lovable British charm and are performed beautifully.

‘Lads in Love’ is the penultimate track with fun riffs and vocals that are eccentric to say the least ‘Cheese on toast and my bubble-gum pocket’ being a fine example of this. The instrumentation is a high note here with excellent drum fills at every corner.

The last track on the EP ‘Fudge’ doesn’t let up on the power or British colloquialisms which is the main front of the band. Again it’s a fun track and feature a Rap section which brings a new dimension to the record. The guitar solo here is also not something usually attributed to Brit-Pop but it’s a great showcase of the guitarists’ abilities and is welcome on this EP.

The EP is well put together both song writing and producing shine through here, the producer notably has done an excellent job capturing the bands energy and mixing it together well. 'Welcome To The Happy Girl's Club' is a great listen and I would recommend it to fans of The Kooks, The Wombats, Arctic Monkeys etc.

Score: 7/10
