Youth League, the post-pop trio from Wilmington, NC, has joined the roster at Cardigan Records. Brothers Mike and Zach Large, on guitar/vocals and drums respectively, formed the band in 2014 from the ashes of math aggressors Virgin Lung. They brought in bassist Jaffar Omar Obi Castillon-Martinez and created songs which defy the conventions on which they're built, yet hit the ear with a natural familiarity.
Their debut EP First will be released on 4/21 via the label. The six track record clocks in at just 16 minutes and marries rough punk edges with pop sensibility.
Listen to "Young/Old", the first single off First:
