LA’s up and comers Youngblood Hawke are on fire and starting to burn it up. with a self-titled EP on the way on august 14th the band (signed to Universal/Republic) have just unleashed the song of the moment, if not the rest of the summer through Fall. and if catches on (I got good money on this), they should have some longer lasting success with this anthemic energetic Arcade Fire-meets-fun jam. youngblood hawke is the result of longtime pals Sam Martin and Simon Katz who are joined by Tasso Smith, Alice Katz and Nik Hughes. ok, so we missed them at sxsw this year; and i’m kicking myself now for that. but tell me i’m smoking crack if this song isn’t deserving of massiveness. give in to the joyful deliriousness of this song people! ps. bonus song below via the burning ear.
