FRESH: ‘Wake Up’ – Callow Youth

Fast-rising indie rock group Callow Youth return with “Wake Up”.

by Christopher Smith

Manchester’s fast-rising indie-rock teenagers Callow Youth are back today with their new single “Wake Up”. The anthemic new song follows a string of sold-out live shows, widespread press buzz and two Track Of The Week seals of approval from XS Manchester Radio.

It was recorded with producer Gavin Monaghan (The Blinders/The Sherlocks/Editors) and showcases their festival-ready songwriting hooks and instantly relatable lyrics about youth, love and life. “Wake Up is about wanting to live in a moment forever and wishing nothing would ever change,” explains frontman Alfie Turner on the new song. “And also, the fact that that’s impossible – but I think everyone feels that way sometimes”.

At the forefront of the new indie rock revolution, things are moving fast for Callow Youth. Less than a year after their debut gig, their recent Manchester headline show sold out in less than four hours and their fiery brand of hooky indie pop has earned them slots at Dead Dead Good Weekend, Dot To Dot Festival, Cotton Clouds Festival, Blackthorn Festival, Oktoberfest and Shiiine On Weekender. With a debut album on the cards for early 2020, a growing following across social media and over 70,000 organic, fan-driven streams on Spotify already, “Wake Up” is only their second official single.
