youbet Shares Live Version of “Vacancy” From Way To Be

Hardly Art’s youbet is sharing a live version of “Vacancy,” a standout from Way To Be, ahead of their summer 2024 tour dates. Touring in support of the record begins Sunday, June 23rd, with an album release show at TV Eye in Ridgewood, NY (with Crosslegged and Iceblink). See the full list of tour 2024 dates here, which includes shows with Truth Club and Sour Widows. 

Way To Be is the label debut from youbet, led by Brooklyn resident Nick Llobet (they/them), with live members Micah Prussack (Bass) and Joanna Quinn (Drums).  The album was written and produced by Llobet, mixed by Adam Brisbin, and mastered by Amar Lal at Macro Sound. Across 12 delightfully off-kilter tunes including singles  "Carsick," "Nurture," "Seeds of Evil,"  "Vacancy," and “Peel,” Way To Be is a bridge into the entrancing world of youbet.

Praise for youbet’s Way To Be:

Way To Be glows with quirky psych-pop, vivid imagery, and intense unpredictability that keeps the whole project intriguing from start to finish.” Rising Artists You Need To Know - Alternative Press

“...the entire album is vivid, colorful and brimming with small rewards…As far as label debuts go, Way To Be is one of best releases in 2024 so far.” Best New Albums - PASTE

“...Way To Be's emotionally intelligent indie is a lesson in how to hit the goosebump-inducing sweet spot.” ★★★★ ½ - DIY

“There are many breathtaking moments provided by Llobet and crew as they traverse a path into their unique and unpredictable musical universe that never fails to delight.” Album of the Week - POST TRASH

“Way to Be, showcases Llobet’s increasingly confident vocals and complex instrumental work while continuing to test the limits of a pop song – devilishly careening between moments of anger, confusion, innocence, and pure wonder.” Our Culture

“There’s something interesting on nearly every track: the crunchy riffs of “Trauma”, the swirling atmospheres of “Seeds of Evil”, the grungy textures of “Do.” It’s an album filled with off-kilter tracks that will make you question which way is right side up.” Undercurrents
