    The brainchild of singer/songwriter Michael Young, Young Werther melds the intricate delicacy of folk with the raw sensuality of classic pop to create an ethereal and disarmingly intimate musical expression that creeps under the skin in turns warming and chilling the senses with its honesty, grace and insight.

    Earning significant popular and critical praise for his suitably named EP Treasure, Young Werther continues his evolution with the release of Knights Of The Department Store this March through esteemed indie label, Popboomerang.

    Recorded under the watchful eye and loving hands of Nick Huggins (Skipping Girl Vinegar, Whitley, Kid Sam) in a studio overlooking the mythologically charged MCG, Knights Of The Department Store, draws upon and harnesses both the energy of the locale and Young Werther’s own determination to continually push past his comfort zone to conquer new and challenging musical landscapes.

    A signpost of even more exciting things to come Knights Of The Department Store sees Young Werther at his most collaborative. Heretofore a solo project, the album is a signpost to Young Werther’s and a honing of his musical vision to encompass an even wider breadth of influences as well as the established talents of Atticus Bastow (drums) and Peter Maverick (bass).

    A spellbinding exploration of the spaces between love and loss, hope and resignation and an altogether enrapturing experience, Knights Of The Department Store is a powerful debut offering from one of the country’s most engaging musical voices
