Why I Heart: Kim Deal

Mar
06

Every single day in March, a different contributor will be talking about a woman they admire, all in honour of International Women’s Day which is celebrated annually on 8 March. Today, Youth Man vocalist Kaila Whyte shares her love for Kim Deal.

I think I was 16. Discovering noise rock, post-hardcore, riot grrrl, and infinite brands of alternative indie. Everything I thought I knew about music was changing. Wayne Coyne, Cedric Bixlar Zavala, Kathleen Hanna, Black Francis – they were the voices that fronted this musical revolution but above all that, there was Kim. More important to me than any of the women screaming, “We can do it!”. More important than the men who were saying, “Yes, we can!”. Her voice carried over the distortion and fucked me right in the ovaries. Kim fucking Deal.

Who are Youth Man?
We’re from Birmingham. I’m the guitarist and vocalist, Marcus [Perks] plays drums, and Adam [Haitof] plays bass.

How did you get together?
We went to school together and have been mates for years. A couple years ago we were each going a bit mental and decided to start jamming and really got into playing and writing songs. I guess it was kind of a release for all of us. That was kind of the birth of Youth Man.
