The Haunted Youth Return With New Single "Into You"

Belgian dream pop/indie rock band The Haunted Youth (led by Joachim Liebens) have returned with their catchy new single “Into You”.

The Haunted Youth is one of the biggest Belgian indie rock sensations of the last few years. After the release of the critically acclaimed debut album Dawn Of The Freak and touring almost non-stop, Liebens has been writing and recording.

UPDATE 5/27/2024: “Into You” is our new Single of the Week!

2024 marks the beginning of the second chapter in the band’s thrilling story, working on new songs and eventually a new album. The first new single is ‘Into You’, an up-tempo indie pop with a summery vibe, while the lyrics are melancholic, musing about longing and love.

The track mixes the atmospherics of goth adjacent bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode with the guitar driven power pop of acts like The Radio Dept. and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

“The song is about not being able to be with your sweetheart, and at the same time not being able to be without them” singer Joachim explains. “It’s about finding a balance between yourself as an individual and your relationship.”

The song is out now via Mayway Records. Grab it here and take a listen below.

The dreamy guitar, melancholic synths and velvety voice of Liebens all combine to form the characteristic sound people from many generations have come to love so much. And while Liebens often sings about his personal experiences and feelings, many people can relate to the songs as they, for all their predominantly dark themes, also carry a message of hope and create a sense of connection and belonging.
