If you’re getting sick of the slick and shiny, over produced quality of today’s modern music world and fancy something a bit grittier; look no further than Euan Lynn. Here is a North East lad whose music screams mis-spent youth – the kind of boy your mother warned you against but you couldn’t help but love.
Making Lo-fi, garage punk with his guitar and a game boy, Euan has spent his whole life gearing up to create a surf style inspired racket. His music is simplistic, with lyrics which are straight to the point, grasping the immediacy of the teenage boy who cares only of skateboards and video games. Taking his influences from the likes of The Ramones and The Undertones, Euan Lynn delivers with a vocal that sounds like he’s teetering on the edge of a teenage breakdown.
