If I had to describe Young Hearts’ EP Nowhere Kids in the least words possible I’d probably just say “New Jersey and Long Island,” even if the band is from Brooklyn. There is no mistaking that this is a pop-punk record but it would be foolish to ignore the band’s debt to hardcore punk as well. However, to assume Young Hearts can be grouped in with the swell of bands that have followed in Set Your Goals footsteps would be kind of off the mark as they borrow from an older vintage of acts like Bouncing Souls, Lifetime and the Movielife. Rather than Blink-182 style pop brushing up against gang vocals and breakdowns, there is a confident restraint shown in the way melody and aggression work together for the band. The question is whether or not that restraint creates something that does more than just break from current trends.
