The Youth Play have hit ‘play’ on their new single ‘If We Just Ever Were’.

The band’s recent EP ‘Wildflowers’ sparked a flurry of hype, with their pop-edged indie sounding just right for summer. Hitting the road, the group have a number of festival dates planned, connecting with fans one-on-one.

The ideas keep flowing, and The Youth Play recently decided on another studio session. The music came into place naturally, blending the urgency of Fontaines D.C. say, with the melodic effervescence of Wet Leg.

Out now, ‘If We Just Ever Were’ is a snappy return, the bubbling directness borrowing from The Youth Play’s dynamic live shows.

A crisp indie roller, ‘If We Just Ever Were’ takes its cues from London, and the overwhelming nature of the metropolis; aiming for communication, The Youth Play permit themselves to do what they do best.

The band comment…

‘If We Just Ever Were’ is a song that was written alongside the tracks of the previous ‘Wildflowers’ EP, the first ideas were thrown around in a moment where we felt we needed to write a fun, not so deep song that embraced the feeling of simplicity, with lyrics delving into the lack of excitement from everyday’s situations, the song aims to amplify the euphoria and catharsis that one gets from letting themselves free from socially built constructions, just focusing on enjoying the moment, as simple as it might be.

The song was written in the context of a big city like London, where its energy and people can sometimes be overwhelming, making you feel captive of a cycle revolving around ‘making it’ or being successful.
