YUNGBLUD

Biography

Dominic Harrison (born 5 August 1998), who performs as Yungblud (stylised in all caps), is an English alternative rock musician from Doncaster. Yungblud has expressed himself through his music as a "socially conscious artist unafraid of delivering genre-bending protest songs." His song "I Love You, Will You Marry Me" describes the true story of a man named Jason who proposed to a woman named Clare Middleton through graffiti on Park Hill that ended up being heavily commercialised and profited by apartment owners, but the woman died, and the man is homeless. His grandfather performed with T. Rex in the 1970s. Yungblud studied theatre in lowercase at Arts Educational Schools, London before beginning his music career. His singles began attracting popularity in 2017, when his style was described as "the spitfire suburban poetry of younger Arctic Monkeys and Jamie T, fused with a healthy touch of ska and hip-hop spirit". Yungblud collaborated with Charlotte Lawrence for the song "Falling Skies", which is featured on the season two soundtrack of 13 Reasons Why. His debut album was released on 6 July 2018.
