Now Playing:  Young Empires

Young Empires power their sound with big, nocturnal beats, entangle them in a net of nifty guitar work, gloss it over in a gauzy sheet of electronic atmospherics, and add head catching vocal choruses to really reel you in. It's an approach that has the Canadian outfit sounding like they source inspirations from indie rock, and give the whole thing the remix treatment...which of course is no accident. In our session and conversations with Matthew Vlahovich, Aaron Ellingson, and Jake Palahnuk at SXSW, the band make it known that's exactly what they would like you to hear. The result is an addictive, sonic mosaic that feels a bit like spinning the globe, popping a finger on the face, and seeing where the adventure will take you. We suggest starting with this session captured at our SXSW showcase in Austin this past spring.
