Whenyoung – Heaven on Earth
Published: 11:00 am, May 31, 2018

Whenyoung have released a new track and – as well as reminding the world once again that they’re Very Bloody Good – they’ve pretty much done our job for us by naming it ‘Heaven on Earth’.

Expanding on their excellent self-description, the track really is a grade A banger, a slice of sunny indie-pop that’s so upbeat even the repeated mentions of ‘Icy hell’ don’t bring it down to earth.

The jangle of the guitar adds to the sense of wide-eyed wonder that the track conveys, complimenting lyrics like “nothing much to lose / everything to live for”. Optimism? Whenyoung have got it in spades.

‘Heaven on Earth’ is yet another example of what the Irish three piece do best: infectious, upbeat indie melodies that avoid straying into the twee and contrived. if you don’t find yourself grinning like an idiot and tapping your foot when this song comes on, we’ll eat our hats. 

You can vote for 'Heaven On Earth', and more, in the Dork Buzz Chart - which takes a mix of reader votes, visits to readdork.com, shares, RTs, likes and other 'stuff', feeds them into a formula not even we fully understand, and gives us a top 10 rundown of the hottest new music. Updated every Sunday, you can hear it each day at 5pm on Dork Radio.

Dork Radio is dedicated to broadcasting the best new, emerging and alternative music. Listen using the player here, or via the TuneIn app on iOS, Android and more.
