Enigmatic Liverpool five-piece Paris Youth Foundation release a stripped down recording of their latest EP today (September 13th).
Produced by the band and mixed by Daniel Moyler, ‘The Nights Are For Thinking About You (Piano Versions)’ reimagines the 4 songs that make up the original EP. Lead singer Kevin Potter explains further - “These songs were written on piano and acoustic guitar so it was nice to take out the noise and strip them all the way back to their beginnings. We wanted to show these songs in their purest form, and a piano and vocal is as pure as it gets.”
With the release of the original EP in April, the band took it around the country on a tour with The Xcerts, where they picked up hundreds of new fans along the way.
Following their debut show on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading Festival which caught the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, who has supported the band ever since, Paris Youth Foundation have gone on to play major new music festivals including Hit The North, Live At Leeds, The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City. They’ve also toured and played alongside Blaenavon, The Magic Gang, INHEAVEN, Otherkin, The Sherlocks and The Night Café.
With previous singles receiving Radio 1 play, Radio X evening playlist and Spotify’s New Music Friday, ‘The Nights Are For Thinking About You (Piano Versions)’ sees Paris Youth Foundation’s ascent continue.
