The Young Playthings

Articulate, alt-pop/country trio from London.

The Young Playthings are a three-piece indie rock band from Oxford, England. Formed in 2005, the band consists of singer/guitarist, Bateman , singer/bassist, Jors truly and drummer, Tibor Beetles. Stylistically, the band fall somewhere between the power pop of the Cribs and Elvis Costello, while Bateman’s mixture of straight vocals and falsetto gives them a unique sound among their peers. The band recorded their debut album, ‘Who Invented Love’, with producer Andy Dragazis and released it in 2007 on Smalltown America Records. Their second album, ‘Back to the Future’, was released in 2009.
