Yes kids, Young Heretics are back with a whimsically theatrical new video for ‘Risk/Loss’, the first single off their debut album We Are the Lost Loves. The video tracks the duo as they venture through Melbourne’s laneways, float over building tops and dine amidst floating silver ticker-tape. The video is the brainchild of director James Lawler and producer Nick Grimsdale of Doomsday Films.
Young Heretics are hitting the road on a national album launch tour, kicking off in Sydney next week.

Before launching 'The Dreamers', their self produced EP at Melbourne's Newtown Workers’ Club on December 4th, Young Heretics are offering their track 'Bone Of A Rabbit' as a free download.
The quirky duo, which is made up by Matthew Wright and Kitty Hart, formed in early 2009. They have been successfully building their live profile of late, after being selected to support Philadelphia Grand Jury and Kid Sam throughout October and November.
The self-proclaimed Melodramatic Popular Song artists will be playing at a series of festivals over the summer including Peats Ridge and Solar Festival, they'll also appear at the Purple Sneakers NYE party alongside The Grates and Red Riders.
So if you are in Melbourne in December, make sure you check them out. Young Heretics will be supported by a full backing band and tickets will be $10 on the door.

It sure has been a while since Melbourne produced something as beautifully low-fi as Young Heretics. Oh, and intense. 20-intrument-produced-sound-scapes intense.
There is something of Stars in here – beyond the obvious, lazy ‘there are two singers: a duet!’ commentary. It’s Stars, if their world suddenly turned sour. If Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan were both perched on the end of their bed, backs turned, right before they took the night-time tablets and floated away, off this mortal coil.
Keep and ear out for their Young Heretics' debut album, due out this winter. And, if their single, ‘The Lost Loves', is anything to go by, they could not have picked a finer season.
