Why: It’s no secret that I’ve been in love with Young Empires since their first demo dropped over 2 years ago. Usually such a solid debut track or two would leave me worried about keeping up the quality but after they rocked me with their live show at the Great Escape last year I wasn’t stressed. They became obvious top picks for The Burning Ear parties at SXSWÂ and have followed through with the flawless 7-trackÂ Wake All My Youth EP. “Beaches” is my new favorite jam of theirs, balancingÂ signatureÂ YE “Woooh ooh”s with the laser tight percussion and big dancey guitar action. Alright, enough rambling from me, just get this EP already. Your summer will thank you.
Oh, and at their stellar show last week with Humans they slowed things down for the beautiful non-EP groover “The Earth Plates Are Shifting” and thank goodness it’s available to stream because its one I instantly wanted to revisit. Turn it up and get swept away.
