Lust For Youth – “Running” Video

Swedish electronic group Lust For Youth released International, their third studio album, last month. The group has morphed over the years from the solo project of producer Hannes Norrvide into the proper trio they are today. Their sound’s changed as well, from their earlier industrial music to honest-to-goodness synth pop. “Running” is fairly twinkly, duo-chrome… More »

Lust For Youth – “Illume” Video

The first track we heard off Lust For Youth’s forthcoming International was, to me, a revelation: “Epoetin Alfa” represented a huge step forward for the band. Here the Swedish producer Hannes Norrvide (and his growing supporting cast) presented a much warmer, more synth-pop-based sound than the soft drone we’d come to expect, this new sound… More »

Immediately that title feels like it could be a subtle tribute to Pet Shop Boys, and based on International’s first single, “Epoetin Alfa,” the PSB nod seems even more deliberate.

Lust For Youth – “Chasing The Light”

Swedish synth-head producer Lust For Youth released his Growing Seeds album last year (check out “It’s You“), and now he’s getting ready to release a new 12″ single called “Chasing The Light.” It’s a stark, brutal, lo-fi bit of synthetic postpunk that reminds me of the Normal.

Chelsea Wolfe – “Flatlands (Lust For Youth Remix)”

The original version of Chelsea Wolfe’s “Flatlands” (from her terrific acoustic collection Unknown Rooms) is a somber, mournful dirge full of swelling violins and built on Wolfe’s gorgeous, expressive voice. As “re-imagined” by Swedish electro-goth act Lust For Youth, the song is transformed into … an electro-goth track. LFY almost completely changes the structure and… More »

Lust For Youth – “It’s You”

Sacred Bones Records is the home of both Cult Of Youth and Swedish electronic producer Lust For Youth, which seems like too many Noun-Preposition-Youth bands for one label to handle. But listening to “It’s You,” a song from Lust For Youth’s forthcoming album Growing Seeds, it’s clear that he’s a natural fit for the label. More »
