Preaching From the Pews: Younghusband

younghusbandYounghusband began as the solo project of Watford born musician Euan Hinshelwood, who spends a portion of his time in Emmy the Great‘s band. But a tenuous link with a better exposed artist is not all the four piece have going for them; they create some decent and original psych-pop tunes, too.

Hinshelwood’s debut single “Could They be Jealous of Us” was released in November 2007 as a digital download, and followed by two EPs – The Judas Cow and Secret Mirkin with Emmy the Great – on limited 7″ vinyl. In 2008 the band toured with Pedro the Lion and Diane Cluck, before finalising their current line up in 2009. Their first live set was performed at Truck Festival that same year.

In the summer of 2011 the band will release their debut single proper “Carousel” through Too Pure. The song was recorded last year in London with Archie Bronson Outfit’s and XL signing Capitol K (Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti, The Vivian Girls and Viv Albertine) and mixed by Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Stephen Malkmus).
