Folk/beat band Young Believers with their fantastic melodies are our Band of the Day and are fast becoming one to watch with their fantastic melodies and personal take on the ever-growing contemporary folk genre.
With a hard working ethic they are building a strong fanbase within Yorkshire and are beginning to branch out to other cities across the country following airplay from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson. Their brilliance lies within their multi-instrumental talents and this has been shown as they have progressed as a band with two EPs ‘She’s A Writer’ and ‘Man Vs. Nature/Fear Walks With You’.
The band’s passion to consistently better themselves has meant main support slots for bands such as Slow Club, Mystery Jets and Willy Mason. Having a string of strong support slots has allowed them to pick up more fans with every show increasing their fanbase and reputation within their region.
Watch the video for their track’Fear Walks With You’ below. Make sure you let us know what you think of the bands we feature.
