The Brazen Youth

Nicholas Lussier and Charles Dahlke formed the Brazen Youth within the otherworldly vacuum of the 300-year-old Ashlawn Farm, located in Lyme, Connecticut. Timeless and freeing, Ashlawn served as a perfect birthplace of the Brazen Youth's debut, The Ever Dying Bristlecone Man. A heavily conceptual record, Ever Dying is a world with endless nooks in which you can lose yourself, containing meticulous threads of layered tracks and arrangements that amplify the emotionally riveting nature of these lyric-driven songs. Upon adding Micah Rubin to the band's lineup, The Brazen Youth emerged with a wild-spirited presence into the East Coast scene, soon gaining an empowered and fresh fan base. The band released two more bodies of work: their sophomore record Primitive Initiative (2018) and their EP 15 Billion Eyes (2019), and toured the US extensively up until 2020.

"Hometown" is the first song released from the recent Changing EP, which was recorded on the family farm over the course of the 2020 pandemic. The lead off song is a glimpse into the exploration of one's becoming in the wake of family tragedy. The follow up track “Cloud Parade” asserts a new chapter for the group, through the relaying of experiences felt in a new relationship, the song echoes a sense of excitement of what’s to come while simultaneously exploring growth as human beings. The songs were all written after a long tour, and during moments that the band (along with everyone else), were grappling with the fact that the world was perhaps changing forever. The EP is about coping with loss, growing up, and shifting human connection -- yet it still somehow holds onto the romantic sense of nostalgia that coexists with childhood, embodied on the track “I Love it All”. Mainly curiosity and comfort. The songs represent a world that is both new and oddly familiar.
