The Mighty Young
'The Mighty Young' are a two-piece garage rock band hailing from the south of Birmingham in the UK. The most established in a varying array of incarnations, Joseph Gatsby and Robb Cartin have been making music together since around 2005 and have recently been making a name for themselves as one of the loudest and most raucous live acts to come out of Birmingham in years.
2016 saw the release of their much-anticipated debut EP 'Neptune', available now on Spotify, iTunes and all streaming services, and limited physical releases. The EP consists of six brand new recordings, put together with the help of Mark Gittins at Megatone (Youth Man/Steel Pulse) and mastered by Lee Russell at Dulcitone (Temples/Nada Surf).
Naturally, the band have welcomed regular comparisons to other two-piece garage outfits, but have been more widely recognized as a tip of the hat to Detroit Stalwarts like The Stooges and The MC5.
Whether in the studio, or sticking to the beer-soaked floors of Birmingham's many hovels and basements, The Mighty Young gives you Birmingham's answer to a rock and roll show, and the results are very, very loud.
