The Young Step
Ben Whitson (vocals, guitar) – Micah Gilliam (guitar, keys, vocals) – Lauren Gilliam (bass, vocals, guitar)
The Young Step make music that’s fantastically untethered to any point in time, a wide-eyed form of rock & roll much too imaginative to be aligned with the past or the present. With their thoughtful intensity and disarming lack of self-seriousness, their equal affinity for Zen poetry and Sade slow jams, the St. Augustine-based trio made their debut with 2016’s El Clàsico—an album mixed and mastered by engineer Matt Boynton (MGMT, Kurt Vile) at the legendary Magic Shop in Manhattan. And while El Clàsico unfolds in flashes of new wave and art-punk and spaced-out psych-rock, The Young Step ultimately remains genre-agnostic, slipping into whichever style best articulates their strange and outlandish moods at any given moment.
