The Underground Youth was started in 2008 as the creative project of Craig Dyer. The band have released 11 albums and 4 EPs, over the years developing their unique sound, which has ranged from cinematic lo-fi psychedelia to a raw and noisy, albeit romantically melancholic, form of post-punk.

Shrouded in a dark aesthetic and the imagery of various art film movements, The Underground Youth have established a devoted global following and cult fan base, continuously built upon by their extensive touring schedule through Europe, Asia and North America. Signed to independent record label Fuzz Club in 2012, The Underground Youth currently consists of Craig (Vocals/Guitar), Olya Dyer (Drums), Leonard Kaage (Guitar/Producer) and Samira Zahidi (Bass). The band relocated from Manchester to Berlin in 2016.

“Nostalgia’s Glass” (Fuzz Club, 2023), the eleventh studio album from cult Manchester-born, Berlin-based post-punk group, looks back at the music of The Underground Youth, forming new songs in a style reminiscent of the band’s past. Band leader Craig Dyer writes: β€œThe aim became to create a collection of songs that paid homage to our back catalogue and attempted to dissect not only the positive but the negative elements of nostalgia, primarily the romanticisation of the past – be it the politics of a country, the controversial legacies of film and musical icons or the sentimental idealisation of long dead toxic relationships.”
