No strangers to a heart-wrenching break up anthem, Liverpool’s rapidly rising indie outfit Paris Youth Foundation return from a quiet period with new single Late Night Lost Love.
The new cut offers some insight into the band’s forthcoming debut album; which, as frontman Kevin Potter told us in an interview One Great Zine, is heavily focussed on the band’s knack for break up songs. “I only like songs when you’ve got your heart on your sleeve and your mates are kinda like, ‘Should you say that?’. The whole world knows who it’s about and it’s very personal, but that’s the only time when I think music is at it’s best.”
Late Night Lost Love certainly may be the Liverpool lads at their best. Its now that the spotlight truly shines on Paris Youth Foundation’s ability to craft not just individual songs, but an entirely recognisable sound made for both late night car journeys and festival stages. Its infectious, its anthemic and most importantly its relatable.
Time and time again the band prove that the early hype surrounding their career is thoroughly deserved. They might not be reinventing the wheel, but their polished indie-pop raises the bar with each and every release, and Late Night Lost Love simply increases the anticipation for their debut album.
