Young Light are well-known as being one of the hardest working bands on the scene. With one album in five years, the duo have shown a work rate that puts the competition to shame. The band first hit the scene in 2013 with their Great White Arc debut album drawing comparisons with My Bloody Valentine, Tame Impala and No Age.
But it wasn't until Desert Mine released their stand-alone single, Blank Dice, that things got really exciting. So where do Young Light go from here? There are plenty of great interviews with Young Light out there, but we wanted to go a step further to see what really makes this band tick. So we tracked down the band's charismatic lead singer, Michael Feerick, and asked him ten thought-provoking questions. Watch the Blank Dice video here.
1. Rock stars are well known for their excess and bad-boy lifestyles. How do you stay in shape when you are on ‘the road’?
Well, over the years I've developed a tried-and-true tour regimen which I adhere to vigorously. I start the day with an elixir of Alka Seltzer XS and Berocca dissolved in a bottle of still Lucozade Sport. Once in the van I'll sip a quadruple-shot Americano whilst working through a series of clenches, crunches, ankle rotations and arm stretches. Upon arrival at the venue I begin my daily retox of 12-14 cans of Red Stripe. Back at the hotel post-show I'll have a nightcap of Jameson and Corsodyl anti-bacterial mouthwash, get 2-3 hours sleep and begin the whole process again.
