Getting old is inevitable. And in the latter half of your 20s, it begins to finally set in. things that you once enjoyed now seem like a waste of time, a reminder of how little time you have. Young Scum’s self-titled debut LP delves into that melancholy feeling of losing time and how to hold on to the people and memories that make everything worth it.
Sharing the same power poppy jangle of their previous EP ‘Zona’, this 8 track album further showcases Young Scum’s ability to craft pop songs that have you dancing along and then maybe shedding a tear afterward. Songs about losing friends, having shitty jobs, freaking out about your future, and of course wasting time.
Young Scum is:
Chris Smith: vocals, guitar
Ben Medcalf: guitar
Brian Dove: bass
Caleb Knight: drums
Additional vocals: Ali Mislowsky

Thank you to Citrus City and Pretty Olivia as always for releasing our music!
This record was primarily recorded at Tim’s practice space behind Hardywood in Winter 2017. It went through a few changes and we re-recorded some tracks with Mitch later that winter at Chris and Ali’s house: Sloth Sanctuary.
