Of all the genres that I thought would never be fused together I think Dream Pop and Country were at the top of the list, it just seemed like those two genres would never work together. However the trio Proper Youth have made this combination feeling like a match made in heaven with their latest single World Was Young getting the best parts of both genres and fusing them together to create something quite mesmerising.

Production wise this track is simple outstanding with the brass section at the start of the track immediately catching your attention, the subtle twang of the country guitar plucking in the background, the ambient synths and looping drum section all creating this divine atmosphere. The lyrics are honest and carry this emotional weight to them with the earnest vocals adding a sense of realism to each individual lyric until the very end where you’re simply left wanting more.
