Whenyoung Biography

Whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/ Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar), Andrew Flood (Drums).

Whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/ Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar), Andrew Flood (Drums). Their story started in Limerick ... three underage teenagers met for the first time after sneaking into Costello’s Tavern: the only bar in town that floated their musical tastes. After bonding over cheap vodka and the sound of The Velvet Underground, they began playing music together and moved to Dublin to seek some big city excitement. Developing their sound, still with a DIY approach, the band moved to London and last year became whenyoung.

 On stage, whenyoung perform a dizzying rock show where Aoife’s dreamy, heart-in-the-mouth vocals fizzle between swigs of Guinness and infectious guitar riffs. 

 The band’s passions pulse through the veins of whenyoung and their influences could almost be picked from a collage page in a retro zine; charity shops and DIY fashion, the style of Marlon Brando, Richard Hell and Georgia O’Keefe, films by Jim Jarmusch, Jean Luc Godard, and Eric Rohmer, books by Hemingway, Paul Auster and Patti Smith, as well as musical heroes like Brian Eno, The Smiths and The Cure.
