Yungblud is the hip-hop-influenced rock outfit created by musician Dominic Harrison. Born in Yorkshire, England, the singer/songwriter was raised in a musical family. His father was a vintage guitar dealer and his grandfather played with T. Rex. Influenced by Bob Dylan, the Clash, and the Beatles, he played guitar and sang from a young age. In 2017, when he was 19, he issued his debut single, “King Charles,” a genre-blending protest song that fell somewhere among early Arctic Monkeys, Jamie T, and Rat Boy. He followed with the song “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” which incorporated some dub and grime elements.
