On April 2nd, Young Statues will release a new EP aptly titled Age Isn’t Ours. A bold, lively and adventurous collection of songs that showcases the band at their absolute best and most confident. A portion was recorded and produced by Ace Enders (The Early November) at his Living Room Recording studio in Hammonton, NJ. A process that Cirignano says, “challenged the band to bring their very best every day”. Another first was guitarist Matt Weber in the producers chair who recording at The Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, NJ, which has become a second home of sorts for the band. Age Isn’t Ours sees Young Statues expanding on the atmospheric Americana inspired rock from the S/T full-length and into the world of smart and sophisticated indie pop. The songs move and unfold with an energy only hinted at previously. Still present are Cirignano’s contemplative and occasionally biting lyrics. Friends, lovers, family and every bit of his personal life are all discussed with an honest wit. “In a thousand years it never changed and I’ve only got sixty if I’m lucky” he sings on “Ghost Passenger” confronting both a situation he wants to desperately change and his own mortality in one piercing line.
With Age Isn’t Ours, Young Statues have matured far beyond what their name implies. They are a band that started as an idea and grew into a certainty – all in just 18 months.
Young Statues are Carmen Cirignano, Matt Weber, Tom Ryan and Dan Bogan.
