The Young Republic - Ballatesque

THE YOUNG REPUBLIC
Balletesque
Label/ Vertrieb: End Of The Road Records/ Cargo
VÖ: 06.11.2009


“It’s the final epic blow of ‘The Alchemist’ that points the way to a fine future. In fact, if the Pixies made country music, they’d sound a lot like The Young Republic” - Mojo @ SXSW 2009

“… Fizzes with Jonathan Richman’s wryness and Jack White’s bite, adding extra dazzle to songs that flit playfully between 1960s Phil Spector-style sparkle, power pop and jaunty country.” - The Guardian


“Proving that The Hold Steady are not the only current US band steeped in rock’s rich heritage” - The Independent


“Vintage pop with overflowing melodies and marching beats, in some parts this has the grandiose of Arcade Fire and in others the twee nature of Belle & Sebastian” - The Sun

“Destined to find pride of place in a hundred be-stickered indie-kid record boxes across this land” - Drowned In Sound


Line-Up:

Julian Saporiti - Gitarre, Gesang
Kristin Weber - Violine, Gesang
Bob Merkl - Gitarre, Pedal Steel, Gesang
Nate Underkuffler - Viola, Piano
Chris Miller - Bass
Logan Linning - Drums
