Pop punk quartet THE YOUNG & RESTLESS release their brand new single release ‘Family Values’. For fans of New Found Glory and The Wonder Years, the band’s sound echos a lot of different influences both old and new. Punktastic premiered the release of the video for the new single and it can be watched and shared via the link below..
“‘Family Values’ is about the typical scenario of a broken home – of course that could mean a lot of different things, but we think it’s something a lot of people can relate to no matter what it could be. When growing up these can have a detrimental effect on you, it makes you feel vulnerable, angry and confused, particularly in your teens when you’re only just finding yourself. It’s just a constant whirlwind of emotions that we delved into when writing this single.
At first the music seems quite upbeat, until the opening line comes in and slaps you straight in the face! We wanted to give the impression of someone putting on a front to mask how they’re truly feeling beneath within both the music and the lyrics. Having been in similar situations ourselves we want to remind those people, you’re not alone, and it’s okay because after all the said and done, it does gets better.”
Digging deep with their new material THE YOUNG & RESTLESS definitely get to know their emotional side with this new release but the music is still full throttle right from the get go. So if you like music your music to be about feelings, combined with punchy beats and harmonic guitar licks, then THE YOUNG & RESTLESS are definitely for you.
