Desperate Youth feat. NINA - 'Another Time' | A Single Review

In a ‘desperate’ bid to catch up with scene releases this Gem ALMOST passed me by.


Released a few weeks back it's certainly hugely catchy with a melody that will burrow into your eardrums and squat there for days!



Desperate Youth is the brainchild of Finnish songwriter/producer Oskar Karlsson, who after playing in a band for several years, felt it was time to start a new adventure and create something entirely his own. Desperate Youths debut single ‘Another Time’ is about the love between two people that, for some reason, isn’t possible at the time.

This new version of 'Another Time' features German singer-songwriter NINA aka Nina Boldt. Her debut album was praised by critics and embraced by the fast expanding Synthwave scene. Her latest album Synthian (2020) rose to #1 on the Electronic Album Charts on iTunes in Canada.

Her success has earned her the nickname ”The Queen Of Synthwave” and few would dispute that title.

With the addition of NINA my vision of Another Time has really come to life. She’s given the soundscape a whole new dimension and the other person in the story finally has their own voice. I could not be happier with how the song turned out!” – Oskar Karlsson, Desperate Youth.

Currently being served piping hot to all your preferred devices you’d do well do squeeze this gem onto your playlists,
