Hailing from Failsworth/Tameside in Manchester, Callow Youth deliver a fiery brand of hook ridden indie rock; they are big on melody and soaked in jangly riffs, as evidenced on ‘Over Your Head’ their new single on Golden Robot Records.
‘Over Your Head’ is about the common man’s daily life in Britain and the effects of social deprivation and manipulation of these people by those who seem to be on their side, but actually just using them to further their own agendas.
Starting out in late 2017 after leaving school, releasing their first demo EP, Vibe, in 2018, they followed that with three “proper” single that show a growth in maturity, both in terms of song writing and their craft as musicians, one that belies their tender age. Steve Lamacq featured the bands last single, ‘Red Leather’, on his BBC6 music show and the track reached number 3 in the UK vinyl singles charts on release.
The band has had numerous radio plays all over the world and their combined singles streams has surpassed 300k on Spotify alone. The band’s biggest Manchester headline show to date came in March at the Deaf Institute, where it was sold out months in advance.
