“There are also flashes of '80s indie, goth and synth-pop in his songwriting that echo Future Islands and divert some of the tracks into a euphoric trance” – The Line of Best Fit

“Dawn of the Freak is a well-crafted set of shoegazerish dream-pop combining shimmering guitars and synths with bittersweet melodies and dark, angst-fueled lyrics” – KEXP

Belgium's finest indie pop export, The Haunted Youth have returned with their evocative new single ‘Into You’.

Lovelorn yet strangely upbeat, ‘Into You’ mixes the atmospherics of goth adjacent bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode with the guitar driven power pop of acts like The Radio Dept. and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

“The song is about not being able to be with your sweetheart, and at the same time not being able to be without them” singer Joachim explains. “It’s about finding a balance between yourself as an individual and your relationship.”

The primary vehicle of songwriter and misfit rock star, Joachim Liebens, The Haunted Youth have been a critically acclaimed part of Belgian’s alternative music scene since first emerging in 2021. They released a lauded debut album, ‘Dawn of the Freak’ in 2022.

The Haunted Youth headlined shows all across Europe and graced the stages of many big name festivals including Iceland AirwavesLowlandsBest Kept SecretRock WerchterPukkelpop, Eurockéennes and Montreux Jazz. With more new music to come The Haunted Youth look set to go from strength-to-strength.
