Poor Young Things released their debut EP last year.  Let It Sleep is an emotive working-class rock release with songs primarily about the culture shock of a big city and surviving there. The music of Poor Young Things is pure rock and roll – a raw mix of Tom Petty meets Billy Squire.  The Candian quintet are doing a five date run in the U.S. opening for Red Wanting Blue.

When Matt, guitarists Michael Kondakow and Dave Grant, bassist Scott Burke and drummer Konrad Commisso first formed a band after high school, the early incarnation had strains of roots and country. They adopted a rawer, rougher, rock ‘n’ roll sound once they relocated to the rawer rougher Toronto.

Poor Young Things will continue to work on their debut album, while playing live and happily living on noodles.
