About the band:
Friend of My Youth are a long-distance indie punk band split between Corvallis, OR, and Santa Barbara, CA. What was originally intended to be a short-lived project with a firm expiration date (guitarist/singer Indiana Laub’s move from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest) turned into a cross-state band built on voice memo demos and discount flights. After two years of traveling back and forth to write songs, play shows, and record, the band is ready to release Telling, their debut full-length. “The record is mostly about processing and reprocessing memory and trauma and weird feelings over and over until the point of feeling like an alien around everyone you know,” the band says. “It’s also about being obsessed with science fiction and alternate timelines.”
