- Carousel / Nothing, Nothing by Younghusband
8/10 Mike Staff review, 23 June 2011
Younghusband are a new band. This is their first single (having released a couple of EPs), on tasty thick white vinyl. The A side is a really shoegazey affair that recalls all the usual suspects - Ride, Slowdive, MBV. You know the score. It drifts and chugs pleasantly away to itself with breathy vocals over a repeated wibbly John Squire-esque guitar lead. On first listen I'm more into the sparser, more keyboard-heavy B side 'Nothing, Nothing', though. It reminds me of a shoegazier Echo and the Bunnymen. Both songs have quite a summery feel to them. Roughly the summer of '93, I reckon. Basically even though I know where all the sounds come from this sounds great, and if it had come out 20 years ago we'd be calling it a genre classic by now. Derivative but very satisfying nonetheless.
