Watch: The Young’uns – John Hill (feat. Lucy Ward)

  • March 17, 2014

The Young'uns - Never ForgetThe Young’uns release their new album ‘Never Forget’ today which the band have decided to release the album under their own label Hereteu Records.

In May 2013, a beautiful thing happened in the city of York. Muslims from a tiny mosque on Bull Lane met protesting members of the English Defence League with a pot of tea and invited them to come inside. This tiny act of love inspired the album. The Young’uns bold vocals and innate musicality take the listener from a tiny mosque in York to the Spanish Civil War through a landscape strewn with working-class heroes, lost sailors and abandoned lovers.
