Night Engine - Young & Carefree
It's been a whirlwind few months for London based group Night Engine. Since debuting at the end of last year with "I'll Make It Worth Your While", the band have received positive reviews for that song and subsequent single "Seventeen", toured with The Joy Formidable, and sold out several headline shows.
The band are now building on their success with the release of their second official single, "Young and Carefree". The track sees Night Engine doing what they do best - taking the best bits of post-punk and 80s pop and wrapping it up in an uber-distorted, bass orientated package. There's elements of Gary Numan, Chic and David Bowie in the song's DNA, as well little bits of Wild Beasts & British Sea Power thrown in for good measure. Like their other tracks, it exemplifies what is so good about the band - it might sound like other musicians you've heard before, but it has that specific stamp which means it could only come from Night Engine.
"Young & Carefree" will be released as a single on May 27th.
