All The Young - Welcome Home
Coming on like a tough, gritty blend of Hard-Fi and Oasis, the new single from All The Young is an invigorating exercise in recapturing the beating heart of 90s Brit-Pop. Big, expansive choruses and angular guitar surge up sweep by in a blur - Welcome Home is a resounding anthem for a band that have every intention to make themselves known.
Speaking of the track, band frontman Ryan Dooley says 'It means business that one. There's no way you can play it without your heart and soul fully in it.' And that 'business' is there for all to see - first and foremost in its professionalism, but also in just how persuasive a calling card for the band it is. You hear this, and you want more. You want 'in', to join the club.
All The Young have also been invited personal by Morrissey to support him at Hanley's Victoria Hall - and when it comes to rock accolades, well, you don't get much better than that.
Welcome Home is available to download from iTunes now.
