Youth League, the post-pop trio from Wilmington, NC, has joined the roster at Cardigan Records. Brothers Mike and Zach Large, on guitar/vocals and drums respectively, formed the band in 2014 from the ashes of math aggressors Virgin Lung. They brought in bassist Jaffar Omar Obi Castillon-Martinez and created songs which defy the conventions on which they’re built, yet hit the ear with a natural familiarity.
Their debut EP First will be released on 4/21 via the label. The six track record clocks in at just 16 minutes and marries rough punk edges with pop sensibility.

“To be on board with such a talented group of people is truly amazing! We are beyond excited be part of the Cardigan Records family!” says Mike Large. “Our First EP is simply a labor of love for every person who’s supported us since we decided to try and make noise together. Thanks for caring.“
