- Fading Into Night by Youngteam
1 review. Write a review for us »
This second album from Sweden’s Youngteam is another in a long line of the whole “shoegaze” revival that just doesn’t really cut the mustard, all the signs of a great band are there, walls of reverbed guitar, soft whispered vocals and a general hark back to all things early nineties, it just seems to lack something special though. With a darker sound than their previous recordings it seems to nod to bands like The Telescopes, Brian Jonestown Massacre and maybe even a bit of Loop but there’s too much emphasis on those bands and not enough of their own take on the genre.
Like a shoegaze by numbers band Youngteam tick all the boxes in the manual, it’s almost as if they’re trying too hard, there are a few ok moments, ‘1974’ is like ‘Going Blank Again’ era Ride and ‘Black Rider’ has an early Black Rebel Motorcycle Club feel to it but it never really gets much better than that, a nice try but lacking a little sparkle!
