Young Romance

Young Romance are an indie duo, heralding from Kingston in South West London.

Benefitting from the masterful care of the guys at Banquet Records, 'Pale' combines Claire's bitter-sweet vocals with the crashing distortion of Paolo's guitars, creating their own brand of alt-rock-indie-pop. Claire's drum beats are equally devastating and the overall effect is something that we at Raw Meat just can't get enough of. Agonisingly good.

Raw Meat: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores that we should look up, what’s the scene like where you're from?

Young Romance: Kingston has got quite a varied music scene, a lot of which is lead by its local record shop Banquet Records. There is a great club night called New Slang which has put on bands like The Vaccines, Metronomy and Foals, but there are also a few smaller venues which put on more punk/hardcore shows. Along with Banquet there is a second hand record shop called Collectors Records which is great, and Keith who runs it is even better.

Observe Young Romance - Pale now:




There's more than a little nostalgia in the power-psych of Fez. We asked them the all important questions just in time for the release of their latest single.

Krush Puppies' latest medieval-tinged murder ballad is a grubby, fuzzy attention-grabber.

Lockdown affects us all differently. Brighton’s Chappaqua Wrestling were supposed to have their first 'big year' in 2020, we spoke to them about breaking out while staying in.
