"In My Eyes..."

Pistol Youth, who could be the Four Corners of rock bands seeing as they have members from four different countries around the world, do a muscular, relatively lo-fi take on Weezer-y power-pop with their song ‘In My Eyes’. Which [in the video] they play with the gang from ‘Golden Girls’ -- well, you should really see it for yourself. - Pitchforkmedia.com

"Pistol Youth - In My Eyes"

What if ‘Windowlicker’ was reshot using footage from ‘The Golden Girls’ Saying anything other than my initial impression would probably spoil the effect, so, to sum Pistol Youth’s new video up for ‘In My Eyes’: Whoa! - Idolator.com - Idolator.com


Smiling Can Backfire Ep... 2008
Every Eight Weeks Ep... 2009
My Own Private Amsterdam - 2010



Pistol Youth frontman Bradley Hanan Carter admired the conception of Ben Gibbard’s The Postal Service so much it inspired him to get together some friends and start his own long distance project across the internet.

After releasing the bands first EP ‘Smiling Can Backfire’ in 2007 Carter invited the other members of Pistol Youth to come visit in LA so they could finally meet each other and mess around with writing music together in the same room... Some of the material from those early 2008 sessions has made it to the band’s recently completed debut album ‘My Own Private Amsterdam’ which is due out March 2010.

Los Angeles, Auckland, Göteborg and Sydney is where you will currently find each member of Pistol Youth but what happens when its time to make a music video...? Well for ‘Problematic’ the bands stunning first track from ‘My Own Private Amsterdam’ Pistol Youth decided to fly the director Adam Jones out to each member armed with life size cardboard cut outs of the band and simply took it from there.

Living apart will change this year though with the band coming together in 2010 to promote ‘My Own Private Amsterdam’ the band will be based in Los Angeles.
