Alternative rock band Youth Illusion arrive to the scene armed with insane guitar riffs, drums, and impassioned vocals that mix in a bit of screamo, in true Bring Me The Horizon fashion. Their latest single ‘Blood On My Hands’, which is part of their six track EP ‘Seeking Answers in Silence’, combines punk energy and an emotional core. ‘Seeking Answers in Silence’ is set for release on 25 March 2022 and with the talent that is demonstrated in ‘Blood On My Hands’ it will be an unmissable EP.
The four piece band, with members from South Africa, Italy, the UK, and the US, are united by the music that inspired them yet they attain a completely new and unique sound. The influence of artists such as Green Day, Rise Against and Biffy Clyro is evident yet Youth Illusion have managed to take the sounds that so many of us love and transform them into the refreshing music that can be heard in all their songs. The heavy style is designed to be heard live, in the centre of a mosh pit, that will keep fans on their toes, yet there is a strong emotional message behind the guitars.
‘Blood On My Hands’ is one of these songs; beginning with strong vocals delivering a passionate message before diving in with the harmony of instruments that create that alternative sound. The growing energy throughout the song is enough to make any sized crowd energetic. Each second brings something new to the song and the result is a fervid experience that is impossible to resist.
Youth Illusion have also released a music video to accompany their new single which perfectly demonstrates the energy and charisma the bandmates have with each other and their instruments. It is easy to imagine the perfectly chaotic atmosphere that the live track would bring. Youth Illusion will certainly send shock waves through the system and audiences can experience their ‘Seeking Answers in Silence’ soon. Or, you can join them on their tour if you want to experience their talents live.
