Biography

YOUVES are a punk quintet from small-town Nuneaton, UK. As if spitting in the face of their parochial backwater origins, their sound is a wide ranging spastic hybrid of post-punk, indie and hardcore spirit, alive with the fearless folly of youth. Lean, aggressive and kinetic, they’re a five-headed beast with a razor sharp sonic focus and steel eyed vision.

Whilst we could lie and say that this particular name change took place due to musical evolution and a new-found sense of confidence the truth is that the Americans (Mirror Mirror) came along in a wave of hype, leading to much confusion. Well, frankly, f**k them. We Brits did it first, and we are better.

YOUVES is born. YOUVES will prevail.

Having released (under their previous alias) a split 7” with Rolo Tomassi, a limited edition tape and a solo debut single in the past year, they’re no strangers to productivity either. Allayed firmly with the UK underground, YOUVES are vocal proponents of the independent spirit; like Black Flag being produced by James Murphy, but without the steroids and militant dogma. They’re an efficient machine, well flexed, high on beer and protein, poised to steal hearts, minds and girlfriends.

    Apparently their set on Sunday at Off the Cuff Festival was their last show ever. It will be criminal if that actually turns out to be, especially as their new songs sounded brilliant.

    Like The Rapture, but not one bit like the Ordinary Boys. Great to see live as well.

    They're pretty much a prepubescent Ordinary Boys with some Arab On Radar scraps thrown in there. Fine NMEcore.

    I'm pretty sure the Bigorexic correction is because it was released under the title on the free holy roar sampler before the album. Probably needs correcting though I guess. Cardiovascular is outstanding though! Amazing art work too...
