whenyoung - Never Let Go
Published: 12:01 am, January 11, 2019Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

Sitting high up the buzz lists, whenyoung's 2019 already looks set to stun. After a twelve months that delivered a five star EP and a string of Really Very Good bangers, just keeping pace would be an achievement in itself. That their first offering of the new year actually ups the bar is something else entirely.

'Never Let Go' is an ethereal stomper. Soaring high but punching deep, it manages to sparkle and thunder in the same breath. "Can you let me know when you let go," Aoife Power chimes in a song described as " about mental health and hope".

At times, 'Never Let Go' swings sharply into arena rock focus, echoing a vocal refrain off the rafters, but it never loses the energy of a close up band filling a small venue with raw energy either. An expansion on an already full sound, it's confirmation that whenyoung are a band on the move.

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
