Young Prisms formed at tiny Mills College before moving to San Francisco in the late 2000s. The five-piece group plays a fiercely loud and sneakily melodic brand of retro-shoegaze that also shows traces of noise pop scrappiness and neo-psych dreaminess. After garnering some notice around town for their live set, bloggers and small labels began noticing them, too. In 2010, Young Prisms made a deal with U.S. label Kanine to release their first full-length album. Friends for Now came out in January of 2011. The band soon parted ways with Hendardy and added Ashley Thomas on guitar and vocals. The second album, In Between released by Kanine in March of 2012.~ Tim Sendra
