After early shows supporting Mystery Jets, Slow Club and Summer Camp, Young Romance self-released their debut 7" 'Pale' via the Banquet Records imprint, and after a run of shows including Dot to Dot festival and Club NME at KOKO, they went on to release their 10” 'Wild EP' which was produced by Simon “Barney” Barnicott who has previously worked with the Arctic Monkeys, Peace, Suede and Bombay Bicycle Club.
The first single to be taken from the EP received praise from the likes of Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), John Kennedy (XFM) and BBC Introducing. The band then toured Europe with shows in Germany, Holland, Switzerland and Austria in March 2015. May 2015 saw Young Romance perform on the BBC Introducing stage at The Great Escape Festival, embarking on a headline tour as well as playing New York Popfest, supporting The Wedding Present and The Primitives before recording their debut album which was released in November 2016 and reached number 30 in the Official Indie Albums Chart.
This was followed up in 2017 by their first Italian tour, a UK tour with The Wedding Present, an acoustic tour of record shops, Frank Turner's 'Lost Evening's' and Indiefjord Festival in Norway. They are set to record their second album in November 2017.
NME - "Mary Chain guitars collide beneath Claire's vocals recalling Kate Bush in her heyday. This is a band that don't just have the sound, they have the songs to match too."
LINE OF BEST FIT - "A towering blaze of weighty drums and smouldering, grunge-tinged guitar."
CLASH - "Rarely has heartbreak sounded so sweet…"
XFM - John Kennedy's 'X-Posure Big One'
