Komedia Studio, Brighton
Brighton-based Youth Sector’s music is a coiled spring of urgency and unpredictable energy; while lyrically offering a sense of catharsis for the confusion of modern adult life.
Taking influence from art school greats DEVO and Talking Heads, the Brighton 5 piece never revel in bleakness, managing to twist everyday narratives into music that is quite the opposite being upbeat, full of energy and with irresistible choruses you can’t help but sing along with.
Released via Leeds label Dance To The Radio their latest EP ‘Quarrels’ effortlessly juxtaposed a dark reflection of modern British life with undeniably catchy choruses and manic enthusiasm, with the band being championed by the likes BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Clash, Dork, Line of Best Fit, Gigwise, DIY and Radio X. A hugely entertaining live act Youth Sector have played shows and toured with Goat Girl, Darwin Deez, Cheap Teeth, Our Girl, Courting and Walt Disco as well as picking up a bunch of festivals in the UK and EU over the last year.
