Copenhagen-based duo Lust For Youth return with their first new music since their 2016 album Compassion; check out the single "Great Concerns" off their new self-titled LP, out now via Sacred Bones Records. 

The cold-wave twosome of Hannes Norrvide and Malthe Fischer describe the new album as "brighter pop compositions that bustle with intricate production," which rings especially true on today's featured track, which calls to mind the '80s new wave days of Depeche Mode or When In Rome. Via a press release, they elaborate:

“No longer galvanizing us with hooks, but with a songcraft unhindered by anxiety, the album presents a cohesion not seen in the project until now. Lyrically, the apprehension still hangs like tinsel. Often garish and celebratory, the droll mischief is this time more pointed, more personal, and far more self-aware. A thread of reflections upon the state of the world is artfully wound throughout the album, casting a quiet force upon the detachment of Norrvide’s vocals.”
