PLAY DON’T WORRY
Fast-rising South Coast punks YOUNG PRETORIANS have just unveiled a new single.
The gritty melodic street-punk anthem ‘Why Worry?’ follows on from the Portsmouth band’s debut EP State Actors released last year.
“I’ve found that as things have been getting more uncertain, I’ve needed to keep reminding myself of what matters and what doesn’t,” says frontman Pete Darwent. “We’ve all lived through some huge events over the last few years and we need to make sure that we aren’t doing ourselves harm by worrying about things that don’t really matter.
“We can’t change what’s happened and we waste so much time sitting there worrying about what’s going to happen in the future, or trying to change who we are to make others happy,” he adds. “It’s all just noise. We should focus on the here and now, making that the best it can be. The last couple of years have forced a lot of people to re-evaluate things. If you can spend your time and energy focusing on your friends, your family, your passions, then you’ll be sorted. If this will all end someday then we might as well enjoy it as best we can.”
