Neu pick Crewel Intentions share theatrical, nostalgic debut ‘Youth In Overload’

Crewel Intentions share theatrical, nostalgic debut ‘Youth In Overload’

It’s the first offering from former Palma Violet Chilli Jesson’s new project.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Crewel Intentions.

Keen-eyed followers of sadly now defunct South London indie tearaways Palma Violets’ Facebook page will have noticed some new activity bubbling away in past weeks. After a period out of the spotlight and a series of low-key London shows, former bassist Chilli Jesson has now fully unveiled his new project Crewel Intentions and it’s a vehicle for him to finally step into the spotlight that he’s always naturally commanded anyway.

Now, the band have revealed debut single ‘Youth In Overload’.

A flamboyant, theatrical affair featuring sweeping, dramatic crescendoes and sentimental reflections on lost years, it’s accompanied by a suitably grainy, nostalgia-tinged video. Judging by Chilli’s extravagant flailing, looks like time away hasn’t dampened his onstage antics.

Watch ‘Youth In Overload’ below.
