Youth Sector lament the daily grind with new single, 'No Fanfare'

Youth Sector have dropped their new single, 'No Fanfare'.

The Brighton band's latest single is billed as "an irresistibly catchy ode to frustrations of the daily grind", and is taken from an upcoming EP coming soon via Young Poet Records.

Frontman Nick Tompkins explains: "'No Fanfare' is about the feeling of working hard and making sacrifices for little to no reward. When you work hard for a cause, and the effort is not reciprocated by others, it can feel like your efforts are only going as far as to facilitate the laziness of everyone else.

"The opening lines "I can have a little less so you can live a little better / you can sit and make a mess so I can find a way to tidy up" rounds off the kind of unfair transaction that the song is about. Musically it has a kind of twitching volatility that feels like an outlet for those feelings of frustration.”
