Poor Young Things – Let It Sleep (Bumstead)

Boasting a sound that lies somewhere between Soul Asylum and Canada’s own Arkells, the six-song debut EP from Toronto via Thunder Bay quintet Poor Young Things brims with harmonies and endless energy from the get go. Describing the band as modern rock with shades of classic rock doesn’t necessarily do them any favours although this seems to be the realm in which they would best be categorized.
