Copenhagen’s The Youth are the next big thing in R&B…no, not Rhianna and her ilk’s modern ‘R&B’; real R&B, the R&B of Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed and Chuck Berry. The foundation, along with the Blues, upon which rock’n’roll was founded.
These four young Danes are known all over Europe for their incendiary live shows, and their debut album Nothing But … perfectly meets that standard. It was recorded live at one of the world’s top analogue studios (Estudios Circo Perrotti in Gijón, Spain) … no sterile, soulless overdubbing for The Youth. They don’t want that, and they don’t need that because they can actually play their instruments and sing without an autotuner! And they have a live drummer! And they write their own songs! A real band playing real music, in other words.
