Young Runaways: Closer
Young Runaways are a six-piece from Wolverhampton in the UK who use violin, trumpet, trombone and keys blended with electric guitar, drums and bass to produce rock ‘n’ roll one moment and elegant chamber pop the next.
The band, comprising a set of siblings and friends from the West Midlands, is fronted by Matt Pinfield and Harriet J Woodcock. Yes, I did a double-take when I saw the name, but alas Matt the new VJ for 120 Minutes is not helming this band – although perhaps may eventually feature a future video of theirs.
‘There Is A World Outside’, the band’s debut EP, was recorded sporadically between headline shows and support slots that included A Genuine Freakshow, Miles Hunt, Fyfe Dangerfield and Stornoway. Mastered by Alan Douches (Beirut, Sufjan Stevens, My Morning Jacket), the EP can be heard online now ahead of its full release.
