Introducing >>> Youth Policy

On New Year’s Eve we received a short e-mail from an LA based artist called Youth Policy with sparse details of his debut album, Time Has Told Me, released just before Christmas.

He described it as experimental folk-pop, going on to say it had elements of Nick Drake and contained fingerpicking guitar and layered harmonies with occasional piano and synthesizer.

In all honesty, because of the timing we didn’t get round to listening until a few days ago a MM reader dropped us a line out of the blue to say “there’s this guy I’ve been listening to that I can’t find a thing about. He just released his album. No bio, nothing. Sounds like Elliott Smith with a dreamy twist.”

It was Youth Policy.

Reminded, we listened and were transfixed by the melancholy beauty and soft folk tones of Wanderer’s Waltz – a gorgeous track where (for once) the Elliott Smith or Nick Drake references aren’t overhyped, overblown or overstated.

Listen to it below, plus another track, Echo Goes For Days. Buy the album from Bandcamp here. And btw, cheers John!
