Carnival Youth lv
The Latvian indie rock four-piece Carnival Youth from Rīga, Latvia is one of the most successful new generation bands not only from Latvia, but also from the Baltic region, as endorsed by The European Border Breakers award at Eurosonic 2016. The sound of Carnival Youth blends exciting melodies, the energy of rock music and fresh tunes - lyrical songs and indie hits embody the bands enthusiasm and love for music. Their talent can be felt both on record and at the dynamic live performances. Their new record resembles Wolf Parade, Temples and Arctic Monkeys. Since the formation of the band in 2012, Edgars Kaupers, Roberts Vanags, Aleksis Luriņš and Emīls Kaupers have released two records - Never Have Enough EP and debut LP No Clouds Allowed, which was rewarded as the best debut album of 2014 in their home country Latvia. Both records have granted them a growing fan base all over Europe and critical acclaim. Their second album Propeller was released in April 1, 2016. It will be presented with an intense tour all around Europe. Carnival Youth have played at NME Club Night at KOKO in London, many festivals and showcases, such as The Great Escape (United Kingdom), Sziget (Hungary), Positivus (Latvia), Open'er Festival (Poland), Reeperbahn (Germany), Eurosonic (The Netherlands) and others. They have toured Germany, Austria, Switzerland and their local region several times. Radio personalities like Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), John Kennedy (XFM) and Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music) have played tracks from No Clouds Allowed on their radio shows. Several songs of Carnival Youth have charted in German and Latvian radio stations. http://www.carnivalyouth.lv
