After early shows supporting Mystery Jets, Slow Club and Summer Camp, 2014 saw the band self-release their debut 7″ ‘Pale’ via the Banquet Records imprint. In the Spring Young Romance were invited to be part of the Dot to Dot Festival tour, and a run of UK shows supporting The Heartbreaks along with several London shows culminating with an appearance at KOKO for Club NME.
During the Autumn the band recorded their four track ‘Wild’ EP produced by Simon “Barney” Barnicott who has previously worked with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Peace, Suede and Bombay Bicycle Club. The first single to be taken from the EP received praise from the likes of Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), John Kennedy (XFM) and BBC Introducing. The band then joined Satellite Stories on their European tour with shows in Germany, Holland, Switzerland and Austria in March 2015.
May saw Young Romance perform at the BBC Introducing stage at The Great Escape Festival, before playing their first sold out London headline show at The Waiting Room in London.
