Label: Fat Possum
Young Danes Yung are a energetic indie rock group very keen on DIY aesthetics: the artwork and production of this EP was handled by the band themselves. These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores bounces along vigorously with a nicely overdriven guitar sound, sharp slices of feedback punctuating the songs here and there. With the perfectly bratty title These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores, the six-track EP shows the band's growth. Veering further into shoegaze and away from vicious, immediate punk, the lead single "Blue Uniforms" showcases the flexibility of lead singer/songwriter Mikkel Holm Silkjær's style.
