On June 10, Yung will release their debut LP A Youthful Dream on Fat Possum. To set the tone, today the Danish four piece has shared the album's first single: "Pills," a dreamy pop-punk lament of an heavily Rx-ed lifestyle.
“'Pills' was one of the first songs I wrote for this album, and I've used the song as a sort of navigation point for what I wanted the rest of the record to sound and feel like," Yung frontman Mikkel Holm Silkjær explained in an email to The FADER, adding that, "Thematically, the lyrics speak for themselves. People think the key to sanity in modern day society is pills."
And so the song's refrain goes: Just take those pills and then you'll think straight again,. Listen below and then cop a pre-order of A Youthful Dream here.
