TUNE Virgin Kids - My Alone
Virgin Kids release new single ‘My Alone’ on 3rd June via Fluffer Records (UK) and Burger Records (US), taken from their debut album ‘Greasewheel’ (out now).
Virgin Kids play frenetically energised rock’n’roll that draws from sources such as post-punk and the 70s West Cost. Starting out as a bedroom project by front man Asher Preston, the band fully formed in late 2014 with the addition of childhood friend, Paul Rosser and ex-Fawn Spots drummer, Sean Hughes.
On ‘My Alone’ the band nail the pint-hoisting romanticism of fresh-faced pals forming a gang and striking out against the world. The trio capture the jubilant highs and all-encompassing, nightmarish lows of young life in the most enlivening and bracing way.
Live: Rough Trade, Nottingham (Record Store Day - 16th April), Sebright Arms, London (31st May) and Truck Festival, Oxfordshire (15-17th July).

“Their debut album is a gloriously unkempt affair. The term ‘lo-fi scuzz’ was just made for cuts such as ‘My Alone’.” London In Stereo
