Youth Man have revealed a video for the follow-up to 'Heavy Rain' - an AltSounds favourite - with the ravaging 'Wide Awake'. Taken from the Bad Weather EP, which you can download for free here, the video sees a not-so-awake man struggling with everyday tasks, while taking a tour around Paris. The track builds up with a marching beat to a Deap Vally-like crescendo, and this band are not to be missed in a live setting. It's an epic near-6-minute journey through acoustics, riffs, and feedback, though compared to their other songs it is their most subdued.

You can catch Youth Man at a few festivals this year:
  • 2-5 May - Live At Leeds, Leeds
  • 8-10 May - The Great Escape, Brighton
  • 1-3 August - Y Not Festival, Derbyshire
