The video for Irish band, The Young Folk’s new single “Home” features actors Gus McDonagh and Paul Reid, both recently having appeared in RTÉ’s hit series Rebellion. “Home” is released on Friday 11th March 2016 and is taken from their forthcoming new album, “First Sign of Morning” to be released on April 15th next.
The video is the story of man in a hospital bed whose heart stops. As we hear the heart monitor flatline, the video begins and the duration of the song is what takes place in his mind during the flatline. Gus and Paul know each other their whole lives, growing up in Portmarnock in Dublin together. Their comic timing is helped by a lifetime of craic together but also the tragedy at the end of the video is amplified for everyone who knows them and gives a meaning to what the song is trying to say, you need to find peace and a home somewhere in your heart before it’s too late.
The band have just returned to Ireland from a sell out tour in Holland, Europe is loving The Young Folk! To promote “First Sign of Morning” the band will be touring in May as well as making some festival appearances this Summer:

The Young Folk primarily consists of a creative triangle with Anthony Furey at its apex joined by Paul Butler and Tony McLoughlin as singer/songwriters of exceptional talent in their own right. The trio are joined by Alex Borwick and Patrick Hopkins for most of their live shows enabling TYF to fully flex their musical muscle. The Young Folk are signed to UK’s Pixie Pace Records – an imprint label of the leading world and folk music label, ARC Music – through which they released their debut album The Little Battle in 2014. Their new single – Home – penned by Tony McLoughlin and sung by Anthony Furey, is lifted from their new studio album First Sign of Morning.
Their commitment to writing lyrics relating to real issues concerning family, childhood memories and times of great personal value resonate with audiences immediately. The Young Folk sing immaculate harmonies straight from the heart and soul of Ireland; they sing tales of times that impacted on their lives with sincere vocal commitment that is hard to match and easy to fall in love with.
Maverick Magazine awarded “The Little Battle” a four star review calling them “quite simply, one of the most promising young bands to come out of Ireland in several decades, and this debut album is a fantastic calling card and opening gambit for the five lads”
