Lust for Youth is a three-piece from Copenhagen made up of Hannes Norrvide, Malthe Fischer and Loke Rahbek. Their acclaimed 2014 album International, took the melancholic insomnia of their former releases out into the street and away from the domestic frustrations of a life in headphones. International marked Lust For Youth's new-found decadence with fully resolved charm and enhanced self-deprecation. This was swiftly channeled into their hit lead single, "Better Looking Brother" off of their newest effort Compassion which restates beauty for a time of crisis and clickbait.
Judgement, design, form, and opinion: to what end will we refine our world if we can't also make an anthem of our lives? Lust for Youth are affectionately vicious, and vulnerably sharp. They are the anticipation of the comedown. This is the spectrum: a low you know, and a dizzy new height. Recommended for fans of OMD, Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears and Total Control.
