Young Love

Mystery Jets’ transformation from dad-ditching rabble-rousers to epic heartbreakers continues apace with ‘Young Love’, thanks in no small part to the guest star, angel-voiced Laura Marling. A couple have “one night of love”, she writes her number on his hand, it washes off in the rain… tragedy! Erol Alkan’s glistening production brushes the whole thing up to a diamond shine, but it’s the Jets’ summation of youthful innocence tinged with regret that renders this duet so indelible. If this is intended to whet our appetites for the imminent release of their second album ‘21’, consider us famished.
