Music Box #44: Yungblud

Doncaster-born musician Yungblud (born Dominic Harrison) is one of the most irrepressible young men I've ever met. Over the past couple of years he's been building a rabid live fanbase thanks to his rowdy, outspoken brand of alternative rock, and a personality to match. There's no one else who's doing what he is right now.

Following the release of his debut album, 21st Century Liability last year, he's been causing a stir both in the UK and the US, most recently thanks to the video and track "11 Minutes", which he performs with US singer Halsey.

For his Music Box session he performed three original songs: "Medication", "Polygraph Eyes" and "Loner", all from his debut album.

It's fantastic to see those songs get the stripped-down treatment, with Yungblud proving to be one of the most energetic and charismatic performers we've had in the history of these sessions.

Watch his Music Box performance, above, and make sure you check out his album as well.
