Young Robin - Kalamunda Hotel
A band with an innate knack for hooks, Young Robin craft a beautiful sound that is somewhere between blissful indie and dance floor anthems. Fittingly, their latest single, the mesmerising ‘Spaces’, is both. Equal parts groove and melody, ‘Spaces’ is the follow-up single to ’U’ from the band's stellar EP, ‘Transitions’.
Built upon a rhythm you can't sit still to, ‘Spaces’ is a delight for the ears with its perfectly-placed layers of delay-soaked guitar, bass, and effortlessly smooth vocals by both Jed Begho and Ben Teune. Playful and euphoric, ‘Spaces’ feels like summer in Perth – as if the band have distilled the excitement of their beautiful hometown down into a singular burst of energy.
This is due in no small part to award-winning producer Andy Lawson, who has sculpted the ‘Transitions’ EP masterfully – capturing the band's energy like lightning in a bottle. Bringing each vivid layer of the band to life, giving every instrument its perfect place in the mix, the combination of Young Robin and Andy Lawson has allowed each song to reach its full potential. ‘Transitions’ is the band at its best and the remixed single 'Spaces' elevates their sound to a new level.
Just two years ago, the band was releasing its debut EP, ‘Tether’, and its stunning singles ‘Ferndully’, and ‘Faker Faker’. The band announced their arrival with a sound that was energised by youth and friendship. ‘Spaces’ takes this chemistry to the next level – adding refinements that show how far they have progressed since their inception. The band's experience on stage reveals itself in the quality of their playing, and their continued mateship sculpts their song writing.
Young Robin will be celebrating the release of ‘Spaces’ and its accompanying video doing what they do best. The launch party will be at The Aardvark, Fremantle, on December 14th with supports from Michael Savage (full 6-pc band), Mt. Cleverest, and Cecilia Brandolini (duo).
