Callow Youth: Big on melody and soaked in jangly riffs…..

Callow Youth – Over Your Head

Callow Youth release their new single Over Your Head on 14th Dec, out via Golden Robot Records, but the band have new tracks already in the can and ready to release very soon! Over Your Head is about the common man’s daily life in Britain and the effects of social deprivation and manipulation of these people by those who seem to be on their side, but actually just using them to further their own agendas. The track Over Your Head,

Hailing from Failsworth/Tameside in Manchester UK, Callow Youth epitomize everything that is great about Brit-rock. Callow Youth are arguably the hottest young band to come out of Manchester in the last few years. Big on melody and soaked in jangly riffs, they deliver a fiery brand of hook ridden indie rock. Over Your Head is bound to make a hell of a noise on the scene.

Callow Youth starting out in late 2017 after leaving school, releasing their first demo EP (Vibe) in 2018, their 3 proper single releases to date perfectly highlight a growth in maturity, both in terms of song writing and mastering their craft as musicians, that belies their tender age. Steve Lamacq has featured the bands last single, Red Leather, on his BBC6 music show and the track reached number 3 in the UK vinyl singles charts on release 

A host of acclaimed live shows across the country have also helped to cement their claim to be considered genuine contenders, a claim their loyal fan base wholeheartedly testify to and indeed display when watching their new heroes. The band have had numerous Radio plays all over the world and their combined singles streams has surpassed 300k on Spotify alone. The bands biggest Manchester headline show to date came in March at the Deaf Institute, which continued in their proud tradition of selling out headline gigs months in advance.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (7105 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.

  1. We all know there’s something magical in the ‘musical waters’ of Manchester as it’s helped create so many excellent bands that have helped shape the UK s musical heritage. There are also many bands who have been hyped up as the next big thing, but who have come and gone with barely a whimper.  However, North Manchester based  Callow Youth  are genuinely laying down a strong claim to write their own chapter in this proud musical heritage.  Starting out in late 2017 after leaving school, releasing their first demo EP ( Vibe ) in 2018, their 3 ‘proper’ single releases to date perfectly highlight a growth in maturity, both in terms of song writing and mastering their craft as musicians, that belies their tender age.
