Woman’s Hour - London, Purcell Rooms

Following last week’s support slot at Brixton Academy for Metronomy, Woman’s Hour are headlining a night of their own. They’ve just announced the details of their debut album ‘Conversations’ (see the DIY In The Studio piece in the April magazine).


The anonymous Gothenburg act YOUTHCULT first appeared almost a year ago, and following October’s ’YOUTH CUNT’ EP he’s back with new track ’Bored’, without a doubt his best release to date. YOUTHCULT is an obvious student of the past few year’s Manchester scene with ’Bored’ brining both WU LYF and M O N E Y, in particular, to mind. However, it is far more than a pale imitation; approaching and often reaching those same heights, and YOUTHCULT has quickly appeared as one of the most interesting new acts in Scandinavia.

Ana and Carlotta like putting things upfront, in a way that feels totally fresh, battering down any sense of been-there-done-that. They interrupt each other, drawled out lyrics overlapping and colliding. “I want you to call me by my name,” they chant, in a track that captures the magic of Brigitte Bardot singles and marries it with straight-down-the-line harsh-edged punk.
