Wild Youth return with New Single ‘Next To You’

Wild Youth – one of the hottest Irish bands to emerge in recent times – reveal ‘Next To You’, a bold step towards global domination after making major strides in the Irish pop scene over the last few years.  

A euphoric 80s-steeped soundscape, packed with glittering hooks and inspired by the all-too-universal idea of immediate romance, ‘Next To You’ is the latest in a string of hugely popular ‘sad bangers’ which have seen the four-piece light up the Irish charts and cultivate a fiercely loyal fanbase.

‘Next To You’ is further complemented by a vibrant, kaleidoscopic video conceived by the band and The Tenth Man, marked by the four member’s hypnotic and irresistibly catchy dances – a further spectacle of the Dublin outfit’s distinctive hip-shaking moves and peppy vigour which has had them selling out shows in iconic venues like Dublin’s legendary Olympia Theatre.

Speaking on the track, Wild Youth shared: “‘Next To You’ is about an immediate connection with somebody; that overwhelming feeling of meeting “the one”, and wanting to spend every single minute by their side. Regardless of whatever that involves, you’ll literally do anything.”

Already making a major impact across streaming services with pop gems like ‘Can’t Move On’ and ‘Making Me Dance’ racking up millions of plays, the band’s blood-pounding choruses, heart-stompingly gorgeous melodies, and deft lyricism have seen them share the stage with the likes of Mumford and Sons, Niall Horan, The Script, Kodaline and Zara Larsson on arena-sized shows.

Homegrown, humble fun is the main preoccupation of the Irish quartet – comprised of lead vocalist David Whelan, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Conor O’Donohoe, lead guitarist Ed Porter and drummer Callum McAdam – whose collective self-assured swagger has caught eyes and ears everywhere.

Leading a scene of exciting new acts, like all the greats, Wild Youth’s penchant for sonic risk-taking means they are constantly evolving, and 2020 is set to be a huge year for the band.
