Youngr

"Monsters is a song for all the day dreamers and doodlers," says Youngr on the inspiration behind his latest single "Monster." "I wrote this about my childhood at school. I used to draw my maths teacher as a monster whilst counting down the seconds until I could run home and play my drum kit! So if anyone out there is fed up with school or work, put this track on and turn it up."

The synth-pop act -- real name Dario Darnell -- hails from Manchester, U.K., and is currently signed it Island Records. The musician has been growing a presence since he went viral with his self-released debut single "Out Of My System." He's also known for recording one-take live video’s, featuring his dance floor-friendly covers of artists such as Daft Punk, Dua Lipa, and Tove Lo.

The official video for "Monsters" features concert footage of the singer's European leg of his previous tour. Youngr has also played South by Southwest and Ultra Music Festival, and has recently announced a few European tour dates. Take a look at dates, as well as the official video below.
