The Underground Youth was started in 2008 as the creative project of Craig Dyer. Via social media sites and the YouTube platform, Craig self-released his lo-fi recordings for free online. In 2009 he released two albums, ‘Morally Barren’ and ‘Voltage’, throughout the year the albums and songs were shared amongst a growing online community interested in a resurgence of the popular neo-psychedelia scene. In 2010, Craig followed these releases with a further two albums, ‘Mademoiselle’ and ‘Sadovaya’. Honing The Underground Youth’s sound further, these two albums led to a much wider online fanbase developing. ‘Mademoiselle’ as an album went viral on many social media platforms and to date has over 7 million views on YouTube. The song ‘Morning Sun’ from the album ‘Sadovaya’ became a popular hit on many underground radio stations and became one of the band’s first songs to be picked up in the USA, South America and Asia.
Kill Your Boyfriend is a two-piece band formed in 2011 in Venice (Italy): Matteo Scarpa on guitar/vocals and Antonio Angeli on drums.
The band’s sound could be defined as an extremely loud and dark psych / post-punk / shoegaze mix, taking inspiration from bands like Suicide, Jesus and Mary Chains, Joy Division. The band name “Kill Your Boyfriend” is taken from a graphic novel created by Grant Morrison and Philip Bond published by Vertigo (DC Comics
