With their new album, Skeleton Jar, set for release on May 24th, the buzz on Youth Group is beginning to grow. Here is just a sample of what critics and fellow artists are saying about this incredibly talented band!
"Skeleton Jar is sweet and dear and genuine in a world stolen by cynics. Put simply, Youth Group gets it. If you don't love them your heart is dead."
Death Cab For Cutie
"Skeleton Jar sounds like I've loved it for years. Its ability to both remind me of all my favorite things, but not sound like any of them in particular is a little scary. It came into my life, told me that I didn't have to get up, asked if I wanted a glass of water or anything from the kitchen, I shook my head and here I am now with another favorite record and I didn't even know I left the front door unlocked. Now it lives in my stereo and has a set of keys to the house and my heart."
"There's a wonderful insularity about Australian music, having soaked up the influences of the world yet imbibed with homegrown flavor... melody and melancholy nurtured in the good earth... all unselfconscious, genuine and sanguine... and they sing of places and cultures unknown yet seemingly familiar... Youth Group make me wanna go ride the Frankston (train) line."
"One of the most infectiously catchy bands I've heard in a while."
