New Music: Laurel Canyons ‘Youth Blood’

Laurel Canyons are young Yorkshire four-piece giving Americana an energetic British twist. Brimming with melody and vitality, upcoming single Youth Blood is a taster of what to expect from Laurel Canyons’ debut album due this summer. Blending elements of roots, folk, rockabilly and country, expect magnificent songs that deal with everyday honest realities, like getting by on your wits, falling in and out of love, and making the best of the hand you’re dealt with.

The name Laurel Canyons is a nod to some of their influences – an array of musical legends that lived in Laurel Canyon during its 60s and 70s bohemian heyday (everyone from The Doors to The Byrds to Frank Zappa) – but mixed in with this potent brew are elements of home; Laurel Canyons are still unmistakably British. Fans of blue collar US rock and classic 80’s & 90’s British indie should find something to love in Laurel Canyons.
