Young Widows - In And Out Of Youth And Lightness

Rating: 8

Reviewing Young Widows used to be a simple case of referencing their past lives in abrasive hardcore combo Breather Resist and rattling off something about The Jesus Lizard, before sodding off for a well-earned cuppa. Well, pay attention, because the game done changed... Don’t be misled by the throbbing post-punk of lead single ‘Future Heart’; on the whole, this is a far more downbeat and stripped back affair, with many tracks closer in spirit to the doomed Americana of latter-day Swans. Free from the shadows of their past, it seems Young Widows have found an infinitely darker place to dwell.
