LUST FOR YOUTH

One of the finest acts updating synth pop for the 21st century, Lust for Youth began as the raw, icy D.I.Y. project of Swedish electronic musician Hannes Norrvide before adding more members and polishing their music. On early albums such as 2011’s Solar Flare, Norrvide combined tormented darkwave, minimal electronics, and gothic beats that bordered on harsh noise, but more melody and structure crept into the project’s sound by the time of 2013’s Perfect View. Lust for Youth’s transformation continued on 2014’s breakthrough International and 2019’s self-titled album, both of which delivered heartbroken yet danceable songs. On March 15, Lust For Youth will be at PAARD.

The Scandinavian Lust For Youth makes a pirouette where decadence and a dizzying sensation fly out of control. And actually the band has been doing that for years and strangely enough they still hold their own. The latest album has dance pop on the menu, sometimes the beat goes wild and sometimes songs turn their backs like reflective ballads. But know that wry, sullen synthpop still reigns supreme.
