Callow Youth – Mad Machine

Callow Youth 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. Their new single Mad Machine, out now on Golden Robot Records.

Callow Youth epitomize everything that is great about Brit-rock. They are arguably the hottest young band to come out of Manchester in the last few years. In April, Callow Youth released their latest EP Straight To The End, which featured the hit track Over Your Head.

Callow Youth continue their momentum by dropping a new single – the instant rock classic Mad Machine. A storming track that epitomizes the title, as the band well and truly amp up the machine.

Mad Machine discusses conversations with the ID, addiction, conspiracy theories, paranoia, isolation, fake news, mind control, the downward spiral into mental illness and the gradual subservience to the Corporation, The Man.

We all know there’s something magical in the musical waters’ of Manchester, as it has shaped so many excellent artists that have helped paint the picture of UK’s musical heritage. There are many bands who have been hyped up as the next big thing, but have come and gone with barely a whisper.  However, Northern 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, Callow Youth released their first demo EP Vibe in 2018.

Their 3 proper single releases to date perfectly highlighting 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 2019 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.

Callow Youth have had numerous radio plays all over the world and their combined singles streams has surpassed 300k on Spotify alone. The band’s 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.  With new tracks already in the can and ready to release very soon, these guys are the real deal!


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.
