Sauna Youth Announce New Album Distractions

Sauna Youth have just announced a new album ‘Distractions’, due out on 8th June via Upset The Rhythm, with whom they recently signed.

Listen to ‘Transmitters’ from the new album below.

From the press release:

The punk four-piece started out in 2009 in Brighton, before moving to London and changing line up to its current constellation in 2011. Attracted to the possibilities apparent within a DIY philosophy, the band self-recorded and self-released their own music until the release of their first LP, Dreamlands in 2012.

All four members of Sauna Youth are also the band Monotony, which they formed while writing Distractions in 2014.

Upon  releasing Distractions in June, Upset the Rhythm will be releasing a split 7” release between Sauna Youth and Monotony.

Those unfamiliar with the band’s sound can get an idea not only via the track below but also by looking at the list of bands they’ve shared a stage with, names that include Pissed Jeans, Thee Oh Sees, Ceremony, Ty Segall and Protomartyr.
