Young Francis Hi Fi - "I Wanna Hold You Tight (Tonite)"

So just the other night,  I found myself craving something punky and poppy. As luck would have it, I woke up the next day and found the debut track from Young Francis Hi Fi in my inbox. This was exactly what I had in mind! "I Wanna Hold You Tight (Tonite)" is 94 seconds of high energy punk rock with crazy pop hooks. This Brighton-based band features Young Francis (One Man Punk Band, Rotten Foxes) on guitar and vocals. The band calls itself "bubblegum punk", but don't let that fool you into thinking this is all pop. There's just as much punk in the equation. This song is like Radioactivity meets the Ramones meets Red Kross. It'll get you tapping your toes and bobbing your head at a frantic pace. And after it ends in a flash, you'll want to play it again...and again! This is a super impressive debut, and it has me very excited for what's coming next from Young Francis Hi Fi. Stay tuned!
