Ahead of their biggest Dublin show yet tomorrow night in Vicar Street (with support from Bitch Falcon), Overhead, The Albatross have shared a new track to mark the occasion, the first song written since the album Learning To Growl was released earlier this year.
‘Our Youth Our Younger’ features kids talking about the universe, God (or Santa), and builds instrumentally with digital beats, gentle keyboard notes, before a mangled Boards Of Canada-style sample gives way to a tough rhythm. As with any OTA song, there is orchestral swells and moments of beauty. Violin and vocals by Lia Wright and bass by Twiggy.
Here’s a lovely remix of their track by Dublin’s Quinton Campbell
