Young Poets is an Australian indie rock band from Melbourne, formed in 2013. Since then, Young Poets have played headline shows all across Melbourne at venues such as The Esplanade, Northcote Social Club, The Workers Club, The Prince band room and Revolver. Young Poets was formed by singer songwriter Tj Alcaniz as a music project so he could share the songs he heard in his head with everybody else. Tj with childhood friend Jayden Reid (Drums) quickly clicked together with this new music project consisting of songs all written by Tj. Chris Hepworth (Guitar) and Bryce Buxton (Bass) joined the project soon after.
The boys stepped into Black Pearl Studios and recorded 5 songs all written by Tj. Crashes will be the first Young Poets EP to be recorded. There is a diverse range of songs on the EP which make it an interesting listen and caters for wide audience. Crashes is a great start for Young Poets and a good direction to be heading.
“An Indie rock vibe with some 90’s grunge overtones” said Matt O’Connor, former Head of A&R at Warner Music Australia.
The first single off the Crashes EP is ‘Wanna be Right’. A rock track with attitude that shows this group is not afraid of being loud. A driving pace that you can’t help but tap your foot and nod your head to. The vocal performance alongside with this tight group’s musicianship makes this song a stand out track on the EP.
Young Poets is very excited to be releasing their first single with the A&R Department after being discovered on Triple J Unearthed. With Tj not being able to stop the songs in is head, we can only see with time as to what sounds we will hear from this talented bunch.
