One Inch Badge (in association with 13 Artists) presents: Whenyoung
2018 has already been a landmark year for whenyoung. It’s seen them perform in Dublin as part of Shane MacGowan’s sixtieth birthday celebrations alongside the likes Nick Cave and Sinead O’Connor, and opened a show for Nick Cave and Patti Smith in Dublin. They’ve also supported Dream Wife, Declan McKenna, The Vaccines and Peace and graced the stages of The Great Escape, Field Day and All Points East. The Limerick band still have a packed summer full of festival appearances including Kendal Calling and Bestival before heading out on an Autumn tour.
whenyoung are Aoife Power (Vocals/ Bass), Niall Burns (Guitar), Andrew Flood (Drums). Their story started in Limerick as 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 in 2017 to become whenyoung.
