Nobody’s saying Brooklyn’s Your Youth has listened to a lot of Nirvana, but c’mon: they probably did. It’s all right there on “Thick Gold (Bodied),” the free song from the band’s new EP “Battery.” There’s the quiet-loud-quiet dynamic Nirvana got from the Pixies, vocals at once tuneful and abrasive and chainsaw guitar that rips right through you when it kicks in on the chorus. It’s a powerful, catchy song from a group that describes itself as “a two-person crash-course in celebrating and subverting pop.”
