Callow Youth punch pop in the mouth and give it that aggressive swagger it so desperately needs with their hyperactive yet poppy track titled ‘Did It Really Matter’. This is one of those songs that, when it surprisingly hits you on the radio, gives you that boost of energy needed to finish out the day. That perfect balance of hook and heathen. Brilliant.
About Callow Youth
Teenage Mancunian indie gang Callow Youth has released their debut single “Did It Really Matter?” through all digital channels. The track is currently XS Manchester Radio‘s Record of the Week on their “XS Evening show”, so is played every night for the next week.
“The song is a reflection on tricky teenage relationships in a world captivated by mobile devices and social media, with two young teenagers going out for a night, with high expectations, only for it to end in a messy argument” explains frontman Alfie Turner.
Callow Youth is arguably the most hotly tipped young band to emerge out of Manchester in the past year and hail from the city’s suburbs of Ashton-Under-Lyne and Failsworth. Their catchy, melodic, original songs belie their age and time together – and the fact that most of them couldn’t play their instrument and had never attempted to write a song when the band formed less than 2 years ago.
Considering we didn’t release a single song and played only one gig all of 2022, this is crazy. Thank u all We’ll be back soon pic.twitter.com/dDnzUbexgs
The band are currently recording new tracks with Gavin Monaghan (respected industry veteran and acclaimed producer of The Blinders “Columbia” album as well as records by Robert Plant and JAWS) – they have material lined up for release throughout 2019, and plan a debut album release before the end of the year.
