With a slight edgy Bruce Springsteen feel, Poor Young Things’ second album, The Head, The Heart, The End, boasts 13 tracks of sweat, energy and determination. “This record is a reflection of getting older and thinking about that” recalls singer/guitarist Matt Fratpietro* as he describes their current release.
Songs detailed on the album The Head, The Heart, The End represent the typical inspirations of most rock bands but also the fight of growing out of the idealistic fantasy of a young rock and roll band. How transitioning into a long term musical presence can not only be challenging, but filled with doubt, tribulations and achievements. That it’s often challenging making a living in an arts based occupation. This is reflected in their songs “Sign Of The Times” and “Revolver”
