Young Empires – Toronto, Canada
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North,Â strong andÂ free
Donâ€™t stop delivering bad ass music to meeeeeee
Young Empires come to us fromÂ North of the border and it’s weird that their homeland, Canada’s anthem references music…I might have rewritten their anthem but my sentiment remains.Â I dug in on these guys and felt like I have heard them before.Â That is the majesty of their brand of indie rock.Â It is flavored with everything from Cut Copy, Friendly Fires to Erasure.Â Fairly ecclectic but sincere and original.Â The music is indie in one stage and then dancy in the next frame.Â There is something to this group for everyone.Â I thinkÂ the intellectual music snob will connect to the sheer integrity of the songs but the good timers will enjoy the free spirit of the uptempo numbers.Â I have rewritten the Canadian Anthem, let’s be honest who really knows the words anyway…..I bet Chad Kroeger will be all, “Crazy I thought the words said something else in English”, he totally reads our posts.
