whenyoung – Actor

‘Actor is about contorting your character to fit into a disfigured view of the perfect self in order to belong. It’s about acting every day and projecting artificial images of yourself through social media and in real life interactions with others. This helps to reassure you that you are important, relevant, interesting and necessary but behind it all there’s a sinking feeling. It’s not you. It’s an act. It’s tiring.’

That’s what Irish trio whenyoung say of their fearless and bold new single Actor. Catchy and hooky, their boisterous guitar pop sounds fizzing and throbbing, the act of becoming who are you are visceral and exciting at the same time as meandering and unknown. They’re experienced musicians but unjaded, bristling with thrill and sparkle as they seek ‘the answers.’
