To be honest, at the beginning I had no idea what to expect from YØUTH and to this moment, I am really confused.

Judging by the name of this artist, I would rather say he would have a deeply electronic house sound. On the other hand, his photo on Soundcloud tells me – no way, it’s a typical clubbing music! And then I scroll down, and see that he’s from Nashville. A true marketing mix.

Nashville is not just one’s place of birth or a hometown. Nashville, when it comes to music, is a state of mind, and I am beyond happy that YØUTH understands that — just listen to “Cold Sweat” and tell me if it does belong there. It does, it clearly does! Because this tune has the best and the most catchy leading pop guitar line I’ve heard in weeks. Combined with the delicacy of the vocals, it’s so beautiful.
