The Underground Youth (Uk-DE based)

Berlin-based group The Underground Youth have announced their eleventh studio album ‘Nostalgia’s Glass’ and shared the dreamlike video directed by Parker Love Bowling for lead single ‘I Thought I Understood’

Craig Dyer writes: “‘Nostalgia’s Glass’ looks back at the music of The Underground Youth, forming new songs in a style reminiscent of the band’s past, whilst lyrically condemning the nostalgia that the album is itself guilty of. ’I Thought I Understood’ was the first track for the album that I wrote following the above mentioned objective to write about nostalgia, in this song’s case an unhealthy obsession with the past.”

Expanding on the album’s themes, Dyer adds: “When faced with making the eleventh record of your musical projects career, you think long and hard about the direction you wish to take. Do you look at what is currently popular and aim to carve out a space for yourself in the modern music which you currently enjoy, or do you look back at the foundations upon which your band has built its name and fanbase? This nostalgic sense of looking over one’s shoulder to the past ended up influencing both the musical style of this new record and the subject matter of each track.

The aim became to create a collection of songs that paid homage to our back catalogue, whilst implementing all that had been learnt along the way. I attempted to dissect not only the positive but the negative elements of nostalgia, primarily the romanticisation of the past, be it the politics of a country, the controversial legacies of film and musical icons or the sentimental idealisation of long dead toxic relationships.”
