Capital Youth - Farewell
Today the search for great new punk music takes us to Switzerland and Geneva band Capital Youth. I don't know much about them but they've put out some very good music. They're a young band who play a mix of catchy '77 style punk rock, power pop and garage punk and I've managed to track down these releases by them; Lemonade ep and a song called Holiday In The Sun https://capitalyouth.bandcamp.com/
A song called City Drip, an ep called Mixtape Vol. 1 and a couple of tracks off the new ep, Mixtape Vol. 2. These are available from Roosevelt Records and you can check them out here : https://rooseveltrecords.bandcamp.com/
It's catchy stuff, highly recommended and in one other bit of news, they'll shortly be setting out on tour with Lyon band Not Scientists and you can check out dates here : https://www.facebook.com/capitalyouthgva/
This song is one of the new ones, it's an up tempo toe tapper (in the vein of Marked Men/Radioactivity at their most urgent) that should be enjoyed by pretty much everyone who visits this blog. Hopefully it's your introduction to a new favourite band. It's called Farewell...
