Supporting other Scottish superstars Retro Video Club and The Dunts – I’d be surprised if you’ve not yet come across Voodoos. They are a mosh pit cult favourite all over Scotland and the UK leaving their mark on each venue they grace.

The highly awaited single was an automatic hit among Scottish music fans with nearly 10,000 streams on Spotify so far. The tune takes a calmer approach than what we’re used to from the quartet as their other bangers such as ‘Garden Ornaments’ and ‘Do It To Myself’ boast edgy angst fulled guitar riffs and baselines. However, the calmer tempo shows versatility in frontman Piero Marcuccilli’s voice and the bands playing style overall.

“Young Punks” is a curve ball in Voodoos discography which also emphasises and proves that they mean business and can do it all.

The tune emits influences from world famous New York rock stars – The Strokes – clashed with their own trademark spin of which we are beginning to be very accustomed to now. This catchy and vibrant tune is perfect for the new wave of gig loving self proclaimed “indie kids” and lovers of experimental indie punk due to its rough round the edges, guitar happy style.

“Young Punks” positively contributes to what is an ever flourishing Scottish Indie Punk scene. The chilled out drum line mixed with the calmer but still powerful guitar riffs create the refreshing single – which is perfect for the unusual sunny weather we are having. “Young Punks” really is that ray of sunshine we’ve all been needing.

The perfectly crafted, infectiously catchy lyrics serve a toast to the music scene in which they are a part of – they complement the instrumentals perfectly.

Voodoos are due to play TRNSMT 2021 and the Tenement TV Discover Tour in November. Be sure to check them out for yourself post COVID, meanwhile make sure to follow them on social media and stream their latest single “Young Punks”.
