Youth Castles is an unsigned shoegaze/dream pop band with members from Brooklyn, N.Y. United States that originally started as a solo bedroom project in 2010.

The band is quoted to be influenced by The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Pale Saints, Slowdive, and Sonic Youth. Their music style is fuzzed-out yet melodic capable of transporting a listener into a soaring-dreamy-like-state. 90s-esque pop elements are layered within their tracks to keep a galloping focus on the tempo while vocals are layered within the noise to be almost ghostly and cryptic, and what can be made out is the bitter-sweet ideas of young love and sometimes all of its unfortunate heart-ache. The sound is said to have “a familiar lo-fi charm” yet an “earnestness in the songs, an interesting blend of musical ideas…” “If a couple of emo kids decided to combine indie pop and shoegaze, the result would be Youth Castles.”
