Reptile Youth are an exciting duo from Denmark. Their debut full length, produced by David M. Allen (The Cure, Sisters Of Mercy) and Marc Ralph (Hot Chip) is inspired by the schizophrenia of life and the human condition, by their relentless drive towards creation and expression.
Their fearless experimentalism sees them as leaders of an electronic punk revival, creating a disorienting complexity in their music that’s still fun-loving and danceable. Their Dadaist approach to song-writing, and indeed to life, rejects the reason and logic of traditional structure and melody, highlighting the inexhaustible imagination of vocalist Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen and bassist Esben Valløe.
