It’s with great excitement that we announce Swedish post punk outfit Lust For Youth has joined our artist roster.

Hannes Norrvide’s approach has shifted dramatically on new album ‘International’. Writing as a three-piece now, with longtime live collaborator Loke Rahbek and new band member Malthe Fischer, Lust For Youth has entered a completely new territory. Norrvide’s work has always had pop sensibilities buried deep in the reverb, but the hooks are front and center on this new album and there is nothing lo-fi about it. ‘International’ is a buoyant synth masterpiece in the vein of early Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys and New Order.

There are still some deeply introspective moments as well. According to Rahbek, “the record deals with the rootless, sometimes almost inhuman nature of traveling and touring. Hotel rooms and strangers beds, drugs and clubs, and the impossibility of living a regular life.” ‘International’ is Norrvide’s magnum opus, and with Fischer’s production and Rahbek’s co-writing skills, the potential this band has always shown has been fully realized.

We look forward to booking shows for Lust For Youth within the US and can’t wait to see them play their infectious new tracks live.
