By: editor

Bourne2GoOut catch up with Southend-On-Sea Quartet Youth Club.

Danny, Joe, Gerarrd and Rees  are gearing up to release Breathe from the sophomore EP and find time to chat to us.  Find out exactly whats on the agenda for the guys ahead of  festival season where you can find them playing to crowds with their feel good tunes…


Hi guys! Thanks for taking the time to speak to us today. How are you? What have you been up to?

We’re very well thanks and excited for the next few months. We’ve been working on lots of new material and rehearsing for all the live shows we have coming up.


If you could describe Youth club in 3 words what would it be?

Fun, energetic, brothers


The first unsigned band to officially chart right next to Adele, that’s very impressive! Tell us more? Did you expect to gain as much recognition as you received?

Not at all, we really didn’t expect the massive response, it was amazing that so many people bought the EP and got in touch via social media, it was all a bit crazy but very exciting.


Youth Club are scheduled to play the BBC introducing stage at the Big Weekender, How did this come about? How do you feel about this?

We’re truly over the moon and hugely excited. It’s the biggest thing to happen to us as a band and massively thankful to the BBC for choosing us.


Are you ready?

Almost, yes! We’re rehearsing all the time and working on loads of new ideas for all the shows.
What can those people who have not yet witnessed the band, expect to see at the show?

Loads of energy and music that’s guaranteed to make you sing and dance.


What has been your biggest achievement to date?

Being played on BBC R1 and selected to play the big weekend show.


Your Music is energetic with a feel good factor, Who are your inspirations?

Our biggest inspiration is the French band Phoenix.


What is your creative process?

Our creative process changes all the time, but generally we work on ideas separately or in pairs and then take it to the studio after to finish off as a group. We all have our own recording gear so whenever inspiration strikes, we get it down immediately and then come back to ideas as a group.


Do you get nervous before shows?

We do get a little nervous sometimes, but they are good nerves you know, and they pass after the first note is played.


What is in store for Youth Club in the near future?

A new video for Breathe and also a remix, and we hope to release some new music later this year.


For those local bands trying to make a break into the music scene, what advice would you give them?

Be prepared for hard work. Work hard on getting your music and sound right and then work even harder to promote it. Get a good team around, people who you get on with and share the same goal as you’ll be spending loads of time with them. And remember, always try to keep it fun and then hope fully you won’t go wrong.


Thank you for your time, is there anything else you would like to add?

Thanks too and we hope to see you soon.


You can catch Youth Club playing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend this May.
