We caught up with indie rock-n-rollers, Bright Young People, for an exclusive Q&A, to talk through their ultimate tunes for an Xmas day playlist and to listen to their brand new single!

Mixing Nirvana-esque guitar girth with Gallagher swagger and Mike Skinner style social commentary, this band mean business. Their latest anthem level belter, ‘So Confess’is brimming with youthfulness and vigour, fearless in its stance yet made by three lads who have a considered and intelligent record collection consisting of The Stooges, Mudhoney and the Velvet Underground.

Listen to BYP’s ‘Original Bangers’ playlist, get the low down on their top tips for Christmas and listen to their brand new tune, which is sporting Track of The Week status, below:


1. Tell us about your brand new tune?

So Confess is out now and it’s a proper dark groovy tune. It’s essentially to do with you personally dealing with a consequence from an action you might regret. You could call it an ‘I’ve gotta ride this one out’ feeling…self doubt looking for assurance.

2. Step Into Christmas or Driving Home For Christmas?

Driving Home for Christmas (get well soon Chris Rea)


3. Turkey or nut roast?



4. Best New Year’s Eve event ever attended & why?

Cuckoo Club and a magnum of vodka…need we say more?


5. Night out on Christmas Eve or a Sherry by the fire?

Sherry by the fire.


6. What’s your favourite Xmas Song and why?

The Pogues ‘Fairytale of New York’ because it’s the best Christmas song ever and will never be beaten. No modern Xmas tunes sound right, it’s only the old ones that have any class.

7. Would BYP ever record a festive tune?…think of those Royalties!



8. If Mr.Claus himself was in BYP, what instrument would he play & why?

The Drums, because Casey our drummer is nearly as old as him, ha only joking…I guess he’s too busy to play anything else.


9. Pick one item of clothing you’d like from Santa?

A big woolly warm jumper.
