This special edition fondly looks back but excitedly looks forward. We catch up with the bands that have defined So Young so far. Starting with Palma Violets, whose early gigs inspired us to put pen to paper. We then revisit our interview with Fat White Family, the band who single handedly gave independent guitar music the shot in the arm it needed and have now left an inspired generation of young bands in their wake. Parquet Courts have kept us on our toes during our three year existence alongside indie darlings Wolf Alice and Swim Deep. Within the pages of Issue 11 we catch up with conquerers of UK psychedelia, Temples, as they ditch the kaleidoscope and draw influence from Disney films. We stay heavenly as we chat to The Wytches and dissect their approach to the long awaited second record. Goat Girl are the new dark darlings of Rough Trade Records, So Young digs deep into their psyche as they break out of South London and reach for the world…without thinking too hard. If 70s inspired, child YouTube sensation, drop kicking, mullet bearing brothers from Long Island is what you’re after, we bring you The Lemon Twigs. Following months of pestering, we take great pleasure in being one of the first to chat to HMLTD, the most exciting live band in the country right now. We myth bust their studio home and talk about their self-influenced mission to ignite a cultural movement. And maybe most exciting of all, you’ll find a page where we introduce the future. Nine bands with various amounts of exposure to their name have grabbed our attention and they deserve yours too. We briefly introduce Cabbage, Shame, Our Girl, Dead Pretties, Lice and more. Read it, take them in and then go look them up and press play. That’s what So Young is for. Use us.
