Today I am here with a special collective, who kept their excitement fresh so far in my memory since I first watched, I’m Not Your Way Out music video about 20 days ago. And everything you’ll read here will make perfect sense after watching it yourselves.
These gentlemen show true potential with so many things about them, but most importantly, this song easily separates them from the rest of the world. I’m Not Your Way Out musically has a specific taste we sometimes feel after reading an impressive book that leaves conclusions to you at the end of the story. Like in real life, nobody is good or bad, we all have them both.
The song musically reminded me of The Dillinger Escape Plan, who might be one of Youth Crash’s influences or the only band I know who has a similar approach in music. Even though, Youth Crash is quite irresistible with what they have done in I’m Not Your Way Out. First of all, the band creates confusion in your mind with their look, vibe, images, the filter of their music video, band name, song title, and everything about them. None of these things make you expect to hear such music, which was very interesting to me. This is the band with a blend of old-school punk rock energy, The Prodigy attitude, and The Dillinger Escape Plan songwriting. I mean, in my book, a band who can put these crazy ideas together can easily make a way to the top level possible in their careers. And I’m Not Your Way Out is a serious step forward in this way.
Additionally, I am very impressed by their songwriting skills. It is a promising composition with different specific tastes and contrasts. The energy level alone is powerful enough to leave its mark on anybody’s mind, but Youth Crash is much much more than that. The way they put their origins together is quite fantastic. None of these ideas are familiar to any ear, connected in an unusual way, yet never losing the excitement level all along the way to the end. I remember watching it for the first time, I was quite blown away by the energy level there yet convinced only after listening to the ending of the song. If this song was without the ending part, it wouldn’t mean this much to me. Now, this is a different level, just like Jim Eyre once said; “God is in the details.”
