Biography

Oxford, United Kingdom (2002 – 2010)

(See also Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies for releases prior to 2006).

On December 29th the band announced that, save for a final tour in March 2010, they will cease to make music together. Writing on the band’s myspace blog, singer and guitarist Andrew Mears said, “we’re still friends, still love to play and there’s no attitude about any of this; we’re all at good points in our lives, just very different ones. Life has spread us out over the country now and it’s become a logistical nightmare to get our shit together.”

Youthmovies formed in Oxford, UK in 2002, and consists of Graeme Murray (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Stephen Hammond (bass), Samuel Hudson Scott (brass, keys, backing vocals), Al English (guitar, backing vocals), and Andrew Mears (vocals, guitar). The band were known as Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies before shortening the name in 2006.

To date, the band have released one full album, three mini-albums, three singles, a collaboration with Adam Gnade, several splits and three limited edition tour-only CDRs.

Youthmovies’ full-length debut album ‘Good Nature’ was released on Drowned In Sound recordings on March 17th 2008. They then released the EP “Polyp EP” in 2009. (For a more extensive discography see the YSS page).
