HEAR THIS: James Younger

August 19. 2013 | By Kaitlin Rodriguez


Need a little spring in your step? Look no further. James Younger captures that pop rock sound that’s up there with the likes of Rooney and The Kooks, with vocals reminiscent of Arctic Monkeys, begging to be sung along with. The single, “Monday Morning” features infectiously catchy guitar rifts to help your feet skip alongside lyrics, “I heard you dancin’ around to my favorite song.” “Monday Morning” is the perfect combination of rock instrumentals with a pop flare, and relatable lyrics about wanting to hold on to the weekend and watch his little lady rock ‘n roll. But hold it right there. Track “Sleeping Alone” refuses to be outdone. Starting off a bit slower and slightly darker with lyrics, “baby, you were my favorite mistake,” the song builds into a lovely rolling rhythm and chorus filled with upbeat guitar rifts and drum beats, accompanied by lyrical reminders of the thoughts in the back of his girl’s mind. If you’re in the mood to dance around to some upbeat rock or if you need someone to help get you there, James Younger is your man!
