Getting old is inevitable. And in the latter half of your 20s, it begins to finally set in. Things that you once enjoyed now seem like a waste of time, a reminder of how little time you have. Young Scum’s forthcoming self-titled debut LP, set for release this summer, delves into that melancholy feeling of losing time and how to hold on to the people and memories that make everything worth it.
Sharing the same power poppy jangle of their previous EP ‘Zona’, this 8 track album further showcases Young Scum’s ability to craft pop songs that have you dancing along and then maybe shedding a tear afterward. Songs about losing friends, having shitty jobs, freaking out about your future, and of course wasting time.
Hailing from St. Louis Shady Bug blends together elements of punk, twee, and experimental folk with a warm embrace nearly impossible to escape. There’s a tag on their Bandcamp that says “warm rippers” and it’s a fitting description for the quartet – Tom Krenniing (guitar), Todd Anderson (bass), Aaron O’Neill (drums), and Rainey – and their lulling but twisted pop convulsions. Their music is infinitely repeatable, relatable, and might be one of the year’s best kept secrets.
