UK band Vistas capture the phobia we all experience – especially this past year – when it comes to maximizing our youth in their latest single “Young Forever.” Inspired by the pandemic-induced FOMO, “Young Forever” is an upbeat piece that highlights the anxiety and restlessness in the most euphonious fashion. But within the fear, the band leaves us with the hopeful message that as long as you’re with the right human beings, you’re living to the fullest:

Speaking about the song, frontman Prentice Robertson said: “‘Young Forever’ is the opposite of ‘Dayglow’ and looks at those not so optimistic days of lockdown. It comes from a place of worrying that I was missing out on some of the best and most important moments in my life and not wanting them to pass me by. The light in this song comes in the chorus where I say that none of that really matters when you’ve found someone that will always make you feel young regardless of whatever else is happening around you.”

The track is from the band’s upcoming sophomore album What Were You Hoping To Find?, which will be released on August 20th. The band will hit the road this fall:
