Latvian indie band, Carnival Youth who resembles as Wolf Parade, Temples, and Arctic Monkeys has released a new single, “Love Is The Answer” along with some UK tour dates.

“Love Is The Answer” is the demonstration of Carnival Youth’s serious song craft, where the band’s different influences are streamlined into the perfect song formula. Blending gloriously hazy vocals with Tame Impala-esque jangle guitars, the combination between melodic, experimental and catchy becomes undeniable when a choir of trumpets break into the chorus.

The compelling visuals accompanying the single, shot in the Latvian seaside city of Liepaja, transport the band back in time to the 20th century. Using a video-montage technique, the band, their friends and relatives appear in old photos and postcards from the final century of the 2nd millennium. As the song progresses to its climax point, the city around them becomes more and more lively and three dimensional.

Love Is the Answer’ is Carnival Youth’s most compelling single so far – the first taste of the bands newly developed sound. Perfecting their craft with each new release, they are consistently creating music that will set them as one of the standout acts for 2018.
