Indie Rockers Callow Youth are at the forefront of a new revolution of guitar-based bands and are deservingly on the ICM Ones To Watch list.

Hotly tipped for a ground-breaking 2020, the band’s fiery brand of hooky indie rock/pop is making a racket in their hometown of Manchester and it’s hitting the rest of the nation.

With some influences of Britpop, Callow Youth released three singles last year including ‘Did It Really Matter?’ and their latest ‘Red Leather’; a compelling rock song showcasing a harder and heavier side to the band’s indie-pop songwriting.

Comprised of Alfie Turner – Vocals, Guitar, Tom Hilton – Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals, Nathan Wrigley – Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals and Connor Wilkinson – Drums, Backing Vocals, the band will be playing their biggest hometown show in March to a sold-out crowd at The Deaf Institute.

With more new tunes expected, it surely will be a whirlwind year for the young quartet. Listen to ‘Red Leather’ and all of the other currently announced ICM Ones To Watch artists on our Spotify playlist! Every day this month we’ll add another band to the list.
