By Ryan Townsend
My Misspent Youth, a five-piece alt-rock band from Bergen, Norway, keeps things short and sweet on their debut three-song single Six Point Eight. Sounding like the bastard child of Knapsack and The Cranberries, the band makes good use of crunchy 90s guitars and College Rock radio influences. The title-track is a fierce and catchy, oddly nostalgic sounding song that sounds timeless enough to be released in 1996 or 2006. My Misspent Youth's muscular rock chops, combined with Haldis Madsen's sweet-yet-impassioned vocal approach, make for a band with loads of potential and a bright future.
The other two tracks on Six Point Eight, the furious "Heart of Mine" and the more understated "Where the Fools are Haunted" demonstrate that this band has got the range to make a solid full length when they get to it.
