Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP, Given Up, whenyoung are back with an epic new single, “Never Let Go,” released through Virgin EMI.
A massive slab of imaginative guitar-pop, the single finds the band expanding their sound. Produced by Al O’Connell (The Big Pink, Superfood), the slow burning track features layers of chiming guitar and vocals, creating a wall of sound that beautifully compliments Aoife’s evocative lyrics. “It’s a song about mental health and hope” she explains. “It’s a message to let people know that you can share your pain with others. It’s a reminder that someone is always there for you even in the darkest times. There is always a reason to not let go.” Watch the video for “Never Let Go” here
