PLAZA – Youth

Hailing from the industrial area of Hartlepool, alt-rock four-piece PLAZA have only released three singles so far (including the latest one, Youth) but they have already earned support and praises from key tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio and, of course, the blogosphere. Not surprisingly though, since their songwriting style is aimed at the creation of anthemic melodies that are backed by lyrics which address the tribulations of growing up. PLAZA’s recent single Youth makes no exceptions and, thanks to its retro “post-punk meets shoegaze” vibe, results way more than addictive. Listen below.
