Divus Julius presents: The Haunted Youth

The Haunted Youth is the band centred around 29-year-old Joachim Liebens from Hasselt, Belgium, allowing him to channel his innermost feelings into music and lyrics. Liebens writes songs to dream away to, wrapping them in a rich and velvety sound, echoing the beguiling shoegaze of Slowdive, the lulling dream pop of Beach House and the downtempo indie rock of Current Joys.

The Haunted Youth have released their debut album, Dawn Of The Freak, to the world. A product of the last two years, the album symbolises everything Joachim represents. The record is an autobiographical portrayal of the highs and lows of life, it’s a documentation of feeling displaced in the world, but most importantly, it’s a symbol for finding somewhere that feels like home.
