What has been cruising on your playlist for spring? Anything good? One song that should be on your playlist this season is “Young Heart” by the German alternative rock band well-known pix. This super-catchy, anthemic track gives off vibes similar to U2 but given in a more modern flare. But what makes “Young Heart” such a great listen? Let’s take a closer look at the song below!
One thing that many listeners will enjoy is the classic indie style found in the instrumentation as well as the vocals. The song starts with quiet energy with the vocals singing alongside distorted backing vocals and an energetic combination of drums, bass, and guitars. Then at the 38-second mark, the guitar riffs explode onto the side with their elevated yet crisp sounds. These guitar riffs hark back to the classic indie sound along with the earthen rock sound found in the choruses. The brightness of the guitar riffs and the grounded vocals in the chorus is something that listeners have to check out as this highlights how the band really hones in the indie sound yet makes it their own.
Another thing that listeners should listen to in “Young Heart” is the catchiness not only in the lyrics but also in the instrumentation. As mentioned before, those guitar riffs are an amazing addition and memorable in their own right. Those high notes cascading down like an electronic musical waterfall just feel so ear-pleasing and sensational. But, the melodies featured in the vocals are addictive too. Just check out the chorus with lines like “young heart” and “be free”. How the melodies conjure in a motion of fluid ups and downs makes this section such a memorable part. Almost wanting the listener to sing along in a call-and-response way.
What makes well-known pix’s “Young” such an enjoyable listen is that the band was able to capture the classic indie sound but also transform it into something so modern and catchy. From the blazing guitar riffs cascading down to the ups and downs of the melodic lines in the chorus, “Young Heart” deserves to be a worthy listen for any music lover, especially those who love rock, as it is a well-crafted tune. Its addictive melodies will have anyone sing along, but its heartfelt musicality will move people even more.
