Justin Larkin – “Young Enough to Know”

A song reflecting on the innocent moments of childhood, “Young Enough to Know” is a consuming track from Justin Larkin, an artist from Springfield, Missouri. Multiple vocal layers assemble amidst guitar twangs, the lyrics remembering a time “young enough to dream.” Larkin’s soaring vocal lead reminds fondly of Hamilton Leithauser, interchanging between suaveness and spine-chilling emotion. The chilling multi-layered “desensitized,” line is joined by lovely backing vocals and textural additions, while the majestic title-referencing refrain resonates with a timeless, string-laden power. “Young Enough to Know” enthralls with its intriguing blend of rock and folk, serving as one of several highlights on Larkin’s new album, Nowhere Is a Place, streaming below:
