Today sees the release of Yorkshire-born artist Yungblud‘s debut single, “King Charles” – a snarling, abrasive debut – commenting on how the youth of today are being completely misrepresented – almost forgotten about completely.
Blending superbly catchy lyrical quips, with explosive pop rock-tinged instrumentation, it’s a massively confident, and finely executed first offering.
Yungblud, aka 19 year old Dominic Harrison has been surrounded by music all his life. Born and raised in a family in love with music; Harrison’s father was a vintage guitar dealer and his grandfather played with T-Rex in the 70s. Young Dominic was destined to follow in their footsteps.
Spoon fed music like The Clash, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan since birth – he’s been playing guitar and singing since he can remember. Now, after carefully honing his craft for the past couple of years Dom feels ready to finally make his voice be heard.
Yungblud has created his own blend of alternative rock: poetry, guitar-hooks and break-beats with a fierce determination to make a dent in pop-culture.
Despite his teenage years, Dom’s lyrics are zeitgeisty, punchy and full of passion for the struggle of his own generation: “At the minute I feel like young people are not being listened to, so music is how I can express my opinions and create change. If we fight, we win.”
