We Never Learned To Live are an exceptionally accomplished band for one firmly in their infancy. As their self-titled debut is released this September they will be concluding only their ninth month together.
Residing in Brighton, their cathartic music is as awe-inspiring as that the landscape that engulfs them. With an organic approach to writing that see’s them restructure and rearrange spontaneous writing sessions, it’s a route which goes someway to explain how a mere three tracks clock-up 24 minutes on this collection.
In We Never Learned To Live, as a band and as an EP, vocalist Sean Mahon is able to address his turbulent childhood in South Wales. After leaving the family home his consequential actions lumbered him with guilt and he openly acknowledges that this EP is a milestone by providing him with the outlet to vent his frustrations, making for incredibly poignant and personal subject matters.
Lewis Johns of The Ranch Production House (Bastions, Vales, Goodtime Boys) was behind the desk for the recording sessions and perfectly captures the ambience they so carefully set out to create.
With a tour scheduled for Autumn 2013 We Never Learned To Live are eager to get back on the road and follow-up their recent jaunts around the UK with The Elijah and Sweden and with Dog Knight Productions’ Disembarked.
