Youel ‘Feel the Fall’ Single & EP Release
Incredible vocalist Viv Youel and the production talents of Poppy Kavanagh and Tom Campbell comprise the uniquely talented Youel.
‘Feel the Fall’ is the first single from Youel, the three-piece alt-pop group making fresh electro-indie which has gained support from BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and new TV series, BBC 1’s Clique. The group have gigged all over London, from Scala, to Proud Camden, to Bush Hall.
“The song is a tribute to female courage against all the odds. I was inspired by reading about women and girls in conflict having to take extreme measures to escape. I was trying to get my head around the kind of unimaginable bravery that takes. The song is an attempt to understand that thought process. Although it’s a heart-breaking story, I wanted the track to be uplifting, as a testament to their strength.” – Viv Youel
The last time feminism and music were so inextricably entwined was in the early 90s thanks to Bikini Kill. It’s refreshing, as a listener, to see that more musicians are writing music that resonates with their personal views. Then incorporating a pop-infused sound that forces the repeat button, Youel has proven to have mastered creating great music with meaningful lyrics. Listen below and support!
Youel are performing at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen tonight, August 4th! Click here for details.
