Indie-pop duo Whenyoung return with new single ‘A Little Piece Of Heaven’.
Hailing from West Ireland, Whenyoung are Aoife Power and Andrew Flood who now live in Ramsgate. Known for their infectious indie-pop, the duo have evolved and developed an expansive new sound, and today sees the release of new single ‘A Little Piece Of Heaven’ - an introduction to what’s to come.
Speaking of the track, Aoife says,
"A Little Piece Of Heaven is a contemplation on the boldness and hurry of childhood. The naive expectations of adult life I had as a child have petered out along the course of growing up and I’ve learned that it’s the little things, like happy memories with family, that are the most important."
Beginning as a band called Sisters in 2012/2013, they became Whenyoung in 2016, and with only two tracks out in the world, were invited by Shane McGowan of The Pogues to play at his 60th birthday party in Dublin, meeting Bono. Their debut album Reasons To Dream was released in May 2019, and they’ve performed for Mulberry, Sunday Brunch, recorded two live BBC Radio 1 sessions at the iconic Maida Vale Studios, and have countless praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Radio X, The Irish Times, Hot Press, The Independent, Evening Standard, NME, DIY, The Sunday Times, CLASH, DORK, Time Out London, i-D, and loads more.
Whenyoung were brought up with a love for music, from Irish trad to 00's pop and eventually came upon punk and rock music of old - that became their mutual escape, which eventually resulted in them moving to London. In between, Aoife studied Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, and Andrew studied Architecture. They both work as garden designers on the side which they see as an alternative, tangible output for the hands and the mind.
They are interested in all forms of art, especially film, fashion and design. These oeuvres help to inform and inspire. Aoife and Andrew love adding identity and narrative to music through film and photography, creating moods and exploring visual elements.
