Based in Berlin The Underground Youth conjure black leather-clad post-punk melancholia in their new track “I Can’t Resist”‘, a macabre and crooning Ballad taken from their forthcoming ninth LP Montage Images of Lust & Fear that’s set for release on Fuzz Club Records next Friday.

“I Can’t Resist”, is like the bastard demon love child of The Damned’s Dave Vanian and The Birthday Party’s Rowland S. Howard, already establishing itself as one of the best songs to claw its way out of the seductive song catalog of The Underground Youth.


On the song’s themes, frontman Craig Dyer explains: “Lyrically ‘I Can’t Resist’ has sort of a double meaning, on the surface it’s an impassioned love letter but it could also be read as a sinister list of hidden desires. The music could frame either, itself both driving and passionate.”
