Say Psych: Live, The Underground Youth, Liverpool PsychFest 25.09.15

Backseat Mafia favourites The Underground Youth made the short trip from Manchester to get things underway on the Camp stage at this year’s Liverpool PsychFest. The post-punk psychedelic band, who at times sound like a mid-era Depeche Mode (and I mean that in a good way), delivered a set that was heavy on drama, a dark and brooding performance that may you forget that it was the middle of the afternoon outside.

The band drew heavily from the new album, Haunted, which is very well named given its sinister undertones. It has darkness that exceeds that of its predecessor Sarvodaya and represents a big step forward for the band and was reflected by group’s confident performance.

This is one of a number of excellent releases from Fuzz Club Records this year, notably for me from 10000 Russos the Myrrors and Sonic Jesus.
