YUNG share new single 'Friends On Ice', new album 'Ongoing Dispute' due 22nd January via PNKSLM Recordings.
Danish indie-rock four-piece Yung have shared their anthemic new single 'Friends on Ice', the third track taken from their long awaited sophomore album Ongoing Dispute, due for release on 22nd January 2021 via PNKSLM Recordings.
Arriving 5 years after their acclaimed debut A Youthful Dream, Ongoing Dispute is a long-brewed album steeped in honesty and tension that sees the band take a sonic leap forward, further perfecting their infectious, fizzing indie-rock melodies. Following on from the hectic opening single 'Above Water' and its rasping following up 'Such a Man', latest single 'Friends On Ice' feels like a rousing and anthemic finale ahead of the record's long awaited release next week. Speaking about the track the band say;
"It came about as a consequence of Mikkel being challenged to strum the most difficult guitar chord he could come up with. This approach has since become a go-to suggestion to any kind of creative block we encounter. Like a one-card equivalent to Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, it rarely works."
Lyrically, Mikkel explains;
"It’s a song about alienation, loneliness and the immediate remedies we, as individuals in western society, turn to when confronted with pain or struggle. Capitalism promotes individualism, which makes a lot of people think they have to deal with issues and problems in life on an individual
level, when often we’d be much better off if we dealt with things on a collective level.”
