The Dirty Youth Return With New Single Utopia

Tuesday, 10 July 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

The Dirty Youth have released a new single and video.

Utopia serves as the title track of the Welsh rockers' upcoming third studio album, which was recorded at Abbey Road and Rockfield Studios and is set for release later this year.

Vocalist Danni Monroe said:

"Utopia is a way of us as a band expressing our desire to break free from the idea of a utopia that people conform to - which in reality, is controlled by what we see, hear and emotionally feel through the media and online. Every single photo you see online has been carefully selected, posed for, filtered… it is not reality. It is a utopian world, which exists parallel to our own world. It’s important to remember that what you see online is not real – and we think that music can play a really important role in relaying this message to people.

"We’re back exclusively on a DIY basis with no one telling us what to write or how to write it. It was quite a liberating experience being able to break free and we’re enjoying it more than ever. This new material is a firm step forward into a new era for The Dirty Youth."

Catch the band performing at Welshfest in Cardiff on July 29.
