PRESS / PRAISE

theneedledrop.com: “Texas’ the Young Maths care about percussion, too. They don’t beat you over the head with it, but it does play a vital role in “Fingered On the Dance Floor.” It’s the final track to their new EP Thank You, Goodnight! We Are…, and sports some nimble musicianship. Tight guitar licks interlock like Tetris blocks with an off-kilter bassline. The fevered vocals and hectic ending give the appearance of chaos, but this track fails to derail–not even for a second. Call it a controlled demolition.”

austinist.com: At the Southern tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley is where you’ll find the sharp and anxious dance punk sounds of The Young Maths.

nitesblog.com: …they’re The Faint’s younger snot-nosed little cousins. Think McAllen’s Zlam Dunk. Think Funeral Party, with a little less funeral and a lot more party. And with song titles like “Meet Me at the Gay Bar” and “Fingered on the Dance Floor,” it appears they have a sense of humor to match their catchy-as-hell tunes.

Austinvida.com: The Rio Grande Valley is a regional hotbed for Latino indie talent as bands like Dignan, Vinyl Dharma and In Situ Sound have proven. From what our sources tell us, more talent from South Texas is ready to burst on the scene. The next band to carry that torch for El Valle is a young indie-pop quartet, The Young Maths. Their new EP, You’re Buying Nothing, is just a raw sampling of what they are capable of.

themonitor.com [EP Review]:  It doesn’t really matter who The Young Maths may sound like, who is in the band or which other bands they’ve shared a stage with. All that matters is the addictive music the band creates.
