Hear New Sound: LUST FOR YOUTH's "Behind Curtains"

Speaking of Iceage, not too long ago, AS was tipped off by Italian label Avant! Records about an upcoming split 7" single by War (which features frontman Elias Bender R√łnnenfelt and Loke Rahbek of Sexdrome) and Swedish minimalist synth-drone artist Hannes Norrvide's project LUST FOR YOUTH. Given the experimentally unique texture of War's contribution and the wave of genre-bending innovation that's blossoming out of the current Danish / Swedish DIY punk scene, AS' interest was peaked as to what listeners could expect on the flipside of the single. As luck would have it, Avant! has just announced that they'll be releasing LUST FOR YOUTH's sophomore LP Growing Seeds in April. They've offered up a first listen in the track "Behind Curtains," which features a lo-fi carnal intimacy in the duo's brand of danceable dark pop that we here in the States often don't often experience due to the glossy nature of today's cold wavers. Hopefully Scandinavia's underground scene continues to attract listeners on this side of the globe, but until then, we'll have to look to international labels such as Avant! to keep us in the loop...
