Lust For Youth are the melancholy threesome from Copenhagen who, with three albums behind them already, have definitely shown their staying power in an industry where bands come and go like buses. Their most recent record, International, was a critically lauded success that expanded their post-punk, dark sensibilities beyond the personal, microcosmic world of their early work and out onto the tiles – even if Lust For Youth’s dance floor is a very moody one indeed.
Continuing on that momentum, the guys (Hannes Norrvide, Malte Fischer and Loke Rahbek) released the first single from their upcoming LP Compassion late last year, and now we’re pleased to be able to exclusively bring you the boys’ next big track, “Display”. With guest vocals from Soho Rezanejad, the song is a vaguely 80s sounding slice of synth-pop goodness, but don’t expect a fizzy, sugar-coated summer banger; this is an emotionally charged meditation from the dark planes of Sweden that takes more cues from Joy Division than it does from Duran Duran. What could be better for these dark days?
