Youth Group at sea for The Night Is Ours

Australia’s Youth Group will be releasing their new album, The Night Is Ours, in North America on April 7th. While Youth Group were looking for inspiring recording spaces for the new album, guitarist Cameron Emerson-Elliot’s father told them about an old mess hall near a ship, the MV Cape Don, that he was helping to renovate. The band realized almost immediately that it was a perfect fit. As frontman Toby Martin explains, “The environment began to shape the songs: a theme of desolation began to emerge. The songs started to become about one character – a person who was trying to escape from the corruption of past sins, looking for redemption and cure. Sonically, the record became expansive, layered, reflecting the sea, the horizon, the expanse of nowhere. The environment gave the record a character and made it an album rather than just a collection of songs. The Night Is Ours is not a record of sea shanties, it is about being ‘at sea.'” Youth Group begin their North American tour on March 16 in Los Angeles before moving on to SXSW and a set of East Coast residencies
