Yung - Ongoing Dispute

That it’s taken over three years for Yung to follow up debut album ‘A Youthful Dream’ doesn’t really play into the ‘worth the wait’ trope; seconds into opener ‘Autobiography’ and it’s as if the Danes were never never gone. This is no blistering return, but a pleasant one nonetheless. Fuzzy and frustrated, much like its title, the tension throughout ‘Ongoing Dispute’ frequently threatens to bubble over into fury, but is always brought back. ‘Lust and Learning’ has hints of ‘80s icons Echo and the Bunnymen; ‘Above Water’ nods towards American noiseniks Cloud Nothings with frontman Mikkel Holm Silkjaer’s tortured vocal nearing breaking point; while the repeated snarl of “you’re such a man” on ‘Such A Man’ is at least halfway to being as disgruntled as neighbours Iceage.
