Young Empires make what they call “world beat haute rock.” They are also one of the most enterprising indie bands in the Canadian scene right now, growing both here and in the States thanks to blog support, radio play and music placements in TV and film projects. They are definitely a band to get into now, before everyone else does.
I managed to corner Matt (centre above) in the Young Empires tour van and get him to tell us just what “world beat haute rock” is all about–among other things. Listen to our chat.
Young Empires “White Doves” (The band’s big radio single)
Young Empires “Rain of Gold” (YE’s dance-y-est track)
Young Empires are back in the van on tour this summer. Catch them if they are blowing thru your town.
