The Youth Play Reveal New Single "If We Just Ever Were"

London indie rock / alternative band The Youth Play have revealed their new single “If We Just Ever Were“, alongside a music video.

The song is out now and marks the band’s first release of 2024, it follows last year’s debut EP ‘Wildflowers’. Grab it here.

‘If We Just Ever Were’ shows the continual progression and transformation of their
sound, this time exploring further their post-punk influences.

Speaking about it, the band said:

‘If We Just Ever Were’ is a song that was written alongside the tracks of the previous ‘Wildflowers’ EP, the first ideas were thrown around in a moment where we felt we needed to write a fun, not so deep song that embraced the feeling of simplicity, with lyrics delving into the lack of excitement from everyday’s situations, the song aims to amplify the euphoria and catharsis that one gets from letting themselves free from socially built constructions, just focusing on enjoying the moment, as simple as it might be.

The song was written in the context of a big city like London, where its energy and people can sometimes be overwhelming, making you feel captive of a cycle revolving around ‘making it’ or being successful.
