NEW MUSIC: Middle Youth – I Don’t Need Your Help

New York’s Middle Youth releases acoustic indie-folk single “I Don’t Need Your Help”.

I’m not usually more than six months late to a fantastic release and I am somewhat ashamed of myself for only discovering Middle Youth now, so the least Turtle Tempo could do is share the wonderful work of Harper James with our readers – even if it is half a year behind schedule. Middle Youth is the ghost of a prolific record producer based in New York, whose other project Eighty Ninety has received attention from hundreds of playlists including Taylor Swift’s ‘Songs Taylor Loves’.

It, therefore, comes as no surprise at all that “I Don’t Need Your Help” features perfectly apt production for its delicate, slightly moody sentiment. Nostalgic in all its simplicity, as though recorded on a retro Tascam multitrack machine, this track is addictive. Middle Youth is the master of the enigma; although shrouded in mystery and vinyl crackle, beautiful indie-folk songwriting shines through. Be sure to follow this talented artist on social media to keep up with future releases…
