I first heard Young Man in the summer of 2010, opening for Local Natives, and was blown away by their live set. Since then, frontman Colin Caulfield and his brilliantly talented band have gone on to record three well-received LPs within a single ambitious project; Beyond Was All Around Me is the third, and “In A Sense” is its first single. It’s been awesome to hear each record as it comes out, darker, more contemplative, and more representative of the band’s awesome live show than the last one – “In A Sense” is maybe the moodiest track we’ve heard from the band yet, almost like a lost Deerhunter track, with an underlying kraut-y groove beneath a gorgeous and vaguely unsettling sweep of guitar and synth. Check it out – the record’s out April 9.
