Up-and-coming Greek duo Youth Valley this month shared their debut self-titled EP. Initially a trio, they became a two-piece after guitarist George Piaditis left the band, leaving Dean Jola on drums/vocals and Joseph Powell on lead vocals/guitars. 

Though their debut is their first-ever official offering, they’ve been making music for quite some time now. They describe in their Spotify bio as music being something they’ve used as an outlet to help deal with life and its many turns, especially when navigating your late 20s and early 30s. They say, “We made music, to survive. And now we have decided to stop keeping it to ourselves.” 

The EP is home to three very special tracks, but we’re especially drawn to ‘Young Sad Lovers’. The poignant number sees the duo blend elements of 80s-inspired pop, shoegaze and new wave, resulting in something incredibly magical. Accompanying the beautiful track are equally as mesmerising visuals directed by Alexandra Diona.
