Irish four-piece Wild Youth, are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at McHughs Basement Bar on Sunday 02nd December 2018.
Wild Youth returns with a brand-new single ‘Can’t Move On’, co-produced by Mark Sheehan and Danny O’ Donoghue of The Script in London’s Metropolis Studio.
In 2017, Wild Youth emerged with “All or Nothing”, which amassed over half a million Spotify streams and held the #1 spot for two weeks. Their second single, “Lose Control”, received heavy rotation on radio stations and led to sold out headline shows in Dublin and London. They soon found themselves invited to support artists such as Niall Horan, The Script, and Zara Larsson on arena sized shows, and drawing huge crowds to their festival slots across Ireland and the UK.
With influences ranging from Imagine Dragons, to The XX, The Script, and The 1975, the four-piece play a melodic brand of pop-rock with electronic touches. After a freak accident leaving Conor O’Donohoe, songwriter and keyboards, with a prolonged period of rehabilitation, he took up the guitar to pass the time. His new passion caused him to shift his focus from college and sports to composing songs in his shed with childhood best friend Dave Whelan, singer. With the recruitment of guitarist Edward Porter and drummer Callum McAdam, the four locked themselves away for a year writing new songs and developing their sound.
