Here's the new track "Beautiful Things" off their new Ep that was releases October 2nd. From the ashes of his band Most Thieves, Rickey and Jackson Wilcox from A Crowd of Small Adventures recruited Most Thieves alum Bobby Lee Parker and Roky Erickson drummer Matthew Long to start working on what would become Rabid Young. They eventually added Alex Stopa from The Silver State and Big Talk. This was a step aways from their former work which was more atmospheric and high brow indie rock and a blatant stab at moving in a more pop direction under the new name, in an attempt to prove that pop doesn't have to be a bad word.
Rabid Young began tracking at Electric Animal, run by Eric who works the audio department for Cirque du Soleil. This gave them the time to come up with a formula to blend the organic elements of instruments into the now digital age of pop by sampling themselves playing and looping those moments. Thus was born their self-titled debut EP, which was mixed by Grammy winning engineer Adam J. Odor. In the vein of bands like Mute Math and Coldplay who were also able to adapt to commercial radio in a way that the music such as the denser art rock of Radiohead hasn't due to the fact it simply goes over the head of you average dial turner, where Cold Play keeps it simple thus connecting to todays add GOOGLE youth. Rabid Young does this without dumbing it down to the level of Cold Play but playing off similar melodic cues. Take a listen to their newest track off the ep below.
