My review:

  • Their song “Headstrong” is Solid, scrappy punk rock. These dudes do it well.
  • The song “Run” Had me hooked in the first 20 seconds.
  • Very good vocals, drumming and guitar playing. A tight unit.
  • Literally with every song they performed last night, I still have had the chorus hooks stuck in my head today.

Smacked Youth are a 3-piece Alternative Punk band from Newcastle, Australia. They have built a strong fan base mainly in Newcastle over the course of 2016 and 2017. SY have played many shows and releasing popular songs ‘Drown’ (2016), ‘Run’ (2017), ‘F***ed Up’ (2018) and ‘Headstrong’ (2018). Their live shows are loud, intense and often consist of sweaty mosh pits! (Except last night there was no mosh pit, because of how small the venue is). I like ‘em!
