Lust For Youth: Armida

Lust For Youth drop one of 2014’s finest pop songs.

Ready for a big tune? Well, Lust For Youth may just have written 2014’s biggest.
Armida is a glistening neon jagged slice of electro funk featuring the frosty whisper of Soho Rezanejad. It’s quite simply stunning.
Unlike previous work, Lust For Youth‘s dynamic has shifted from central cog, Hannes Norrvide, and his clinical ice-cool detachment to feisty electro pop grandeur resplendent in the joining of forces with live collaborator Loke Rahbek and new boy Malthe Fischer on guitar.
Armida is taken from the band’s forthcoming record, International, out on June 9 and as the title indicates it’s a careering look at all things all over the world. Or as Rahbek says, ‘The record deals with the rootless, sometimes almost inhuman, nature of travelling and touring. Hotel rooms and strangers’ beds, drugs and clubs, and the impossibility of living a regular life.
Sounds familiar. Armida from the forthcoming record, International is set for release on June 9 via the perma-ace Sacred Bones Records.
