Young Wonder

Birth

[Feel Good Lost]

Young Wonder’s chopped drum beats, samples from far-flung influences and dream-like vocals make for a compelling sonic front. From the twinkling keys that signal the beginning of opener Salt of the Earth to the climax of the final track Táim Tuirseach, the Cork duo throw everything into a debut album that encompasses aspects of electro, pop and dub with some Asian traditional instrumentation thrown in for good measure. Amazingly, the vast majority of it sticks.
