I was immediately captivated by French artist YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB’s new single ‘Young’ purely from the lyricism. This is such a beautifully constructed slice of alt-pop that carries so much substance within the words sung.

The 21 year-old talent is not only a singer and songwriter but also a producer and mix engineer. Combined with a skill for writing impactful songs, you can expect to hear a lot more from this magnificent performer.

“‘Young’ is about feeling lost, desperate and demotivated while being told that you got your whole life ahead of yourself and that you’ll never be happier. That is definitely how I felt when I wrote it. I think I needed to hear these words, and I needed to hear them from myself specifically, because when all is crumbling around us the only person we can really rely on is ourselves. Through this song I tell myself that things are going to be fine and that I need to hold on, but I also give myself a reality check and pretty much force myself to acknowledge and even embrace my insecurities and weaknesses.”
