“Bent Out Of Shape” by Young Rival

Young Rival have revealed their new video for “Bent Out Of Shape”. The band’s new album Interior Light is available now on Paper Bag Records. The band is currently on a full North American tour with label mates Born Ruffians.

For nearly a decade, the trio Young Rival have been making some of the catchiest and wittiest garage pop in Hamilton, Ontario, with a deft facility for crafting smart earworms and delivering them with rambunctious energy. In addition to a handful of viral music videos, they have two critically acclaimed albums under their collective belt (2010’s self-titled debut and 2012’s Stay Young), not to mention a reputation as one of the rip-roaring-est live acts in Canada.

Yet, to keep the band sounding fresh-for them as well as for their fans-the three friends had to take a step back and reassess Young Rival: how they sounded, what they did, and how they did it. “It was definitely time for us to have a sitdown together and figure things out,” says Aron D’Alesio, the band’s singer, songwriter, and guitar player. It could have spelled the end of Young Rival, but instead, “we decided to switch things up. Do things differently. Try something new.”

The result of that process of intense self-examination is nothing less than a rebirth: Young Rival emerge on Interior Light sounding wiser, smarter, wilier, and weirder. Going for absolute broke, they’ve made a supremely gnarly indie psych album, raw and unpredictable, hilarious and often heartbreaking.
