Lust For Youth // In Short

lust for youth

Having stepped things up with latest album International, Lust for Youth became a bonafide pop band this year. From the confessional, lo-fi nature of frontman Hannes Norrvide’s previous albums under this moniker to the buoyant synth brilliance that marks this release, it’s clear that this slick new feel suits the trio just perfectly. Taking the best of Norrvide’s pop sensibility and shining a light on it has been a bold move that’s made them more exciting than ever. Just listen to the first cut off the album ‘Epoetin Alfa’ below to see for yourself.

The Danish future-superstars are on the road and will be playing London’s 100 Club on September 26th (Get Tickets) so we caught up withe them to find out more about what makes them tick:
