Brit alt-rockers Youth Killed It are our track of the day for a few reasons. One of them being the fact that they have announced their debut album and it is the coolest name. Modern Bollotics (it made me chuckle) is pretty accurate for the world's political state right now in my opinion. BTW the record is set for release via Rude Records on May 12, 2017. Keep your eyes peeled! They're also our track of the day because we're on a Brit hype at the moment and the quintet hail from Norwich!

But the main reason we're putting them as our track of the day is their lead single from the record Popstar. It's pretty rad! It combines some old-school Brit-pop lyrics (we all remember the Blur days, don't act like you don't), hip-hop drums, cracking guitars and a bassline fit for a Skrillex track!

Speaking of the single the band say; "This track is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. You know how the old story goes, boy starts band, boys thinks he can be a popstar. Then boy quickly realises he looks like a Cheshire cat mated with The Rock and bam that dream is over… I guess deep down it’s a critique of what being a young adult has become nowadays. You’ve got to do things the 'old fashioned way' if you want to be generally not frowned upon by society – you must be realistic! But we didn’t want to get too serious about it so this what came out.
