Yung is wild punk garage rock! It doesn’t get any clearer than that.
Yung’s punk tunes go from being melodic to noisy, shifting to calm rhythms and changing again into edgy ‘I’ll do whatever the hell I want’-rock. Organized wildness, you might say.
‘God’ is one of the tracks from the band’s EP ‘These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores‘ dropped on September 18 this year. And now it seems that the guys have had sufficient time off from their wild live gigs to produce a video for the track.
The video takes place in a simple pink-illuminated living room, with a TV showing karaoke lyrics of ‘God’ while the band members are sitting around a coffee table filled with half empty wine glasses. The setting indicates that they have hosted an all-night party, but the only ones left are a creepy snake a white mouse and the band members who are tiredly trying fight their urge to go to bed.
The plot of the video is simple. Mikkel Holm Silkjær is stumbling around, singing karaoke in a small microphone while the others are sitting around him, staring at the TV or in thin air and rubbing their tired eyes.
The first image you see in the video is a snake crawling on Mikkel’s arm. What happens with the snake and the mouse, you have to see for yourself. This track illustrates everything Yung stands for – Simple, edgy and classic punk.
Yung is basically Mikkel Holm Silkjær’s raspy voice fluctuating between high- and low-pitched tones, Tobias Tarp’s rhythmic and hard beating bass, Emil Zethsen’s finger-ripping guitar play and Frederik Nybo Vejje’s wild drumming skills all mixed in one big punk pot.
If you miss the sound of old classic punk rock, Yung is your go-to band and then you should make sure NOT to miss the opportunity to see them live in their own hometown Aarhus at Atlas the 29th of October. They will be playing with other punk allies ‘Tears’ and ‘Less Win’, and I guarantee you that they will blow your heads off. So if you’re into that, you can read more and sign up for a night filled with edgy, live punk right here.
