NEWS: Whenyoung are back with new single, ‘A Little Piece of Heaven’

Irish indie duo, Whenyoung, are back with their lush, cinematic new single, ‘A Little Piece of Heaven.’  Aoife Power and Andrew Flood are known for their infectious indie-pop and have evolved and developed an expansive new sound in their latest single; an exciting taste of things to come.

Speaking of the track, Aoife says, “A Little Piece Of Heaven is a contemplation on the boldness and hurry of childhood. The naïve expectations of adult life I had as a child have petered out along the course of growing up and I’ve learned that it’s the little things, like happy memories with family, that are the most important.” Watch the mesmerizing video here:

Beginning as a band called Sisters in 2012/2013, they became Whenyoung in 2016, and with only two tracks out in the world, were invited by Shane McGowan of The Pogues to play at his 60th birthday party in Dublin. Their celebrated debut album Reasons To Dream was released in May 2019 earning them performances for Mulberry, Sunday Brunch and two live BBC Radio 1 sessions at the iconic Maida Vale Studios. Their sound has evolved since then and their music can be found on popular editorial Spotify playlists like Dark & Stormy and Deep Dark Indie.

Whenyoung were brought up with a love for music, from Irish trad to 00’s pop and eventually came upon punk and rock music of old. Bonding over the sound of The Velvet Underground, they began playing music together. It became their mutual escape, which eventually resulted in them moving to London, then Ramsgate.

The duo’s interest in visual elements like film, fashion and design creates mood and narrative, echoing the music through film. This is most evident in ‘A Little Piece of Heaven’s’ stunning, cinematic video, directed by Luke Ogden.

In between creating music, Aoife studied Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, and Andrew studied Architecture. They both work as garden designers on the side which they see as an alternative output for the hands and mind. Their interest in the shaping and metamorphosis of horticulture could be seen to mirror the organic metamorphosis of the band. As Andrew says,

“Even within a life, there are infinite metamorphoses. Nothing remains the same, nor can it with all the will in the world. So, we offer you Whenyoung anew, Whenyoung reborn, Whenyoung in perpetuity and Whenyoung as it always was. Slán go fóill.’

We can’t wait to see what they do next. Find out more here:
