Kassassin Street - To Be Young

Right now there’s one band leading the charge from Breaking More Waves home city of Portsmouth and that is Kassassin Street. New song To Be Young is a fine example of why. A propulsive piece of indie rock that has become a staple part of the band’s live set, To Be Young goes at it like two lustful lovers who haven’t seen each other for months and doesn’t let up until it has climaxed after a glorious three minutes and forty seconds. “We could have been someone, oh to be young, to be young,” sings Rowan Bastable, looking back with just a hint of regret. No regrets about Kassassin Street being featured on this blog again though; To Be Young is a relentlessly formidable tune.

Recorded with Tristan Ivemy (Frank Turner/Tubelord) in London and mixed by Dan Grech (Lana Del Ray/Circa Waves/Beck) the song will be released on 30th March, just before the five-piece play another 400 capacity sold out gig at Portsmouth's legendary independent venue The Wedgewood Rooms.
