With their latest release “So Cruel”, Canadian trio, Young Empires, are in store for a big 2015.
Consisting of Matthew Vlahovich, Jacob Palahnuk, and Taylor Hill, Young Empires was formed in 2010 and five years later they’re still finding their way to stardom. Young Empires create a fun, playful, yet emotional music that everyone can relate to. Last year they released a 6 track EP entitled, Wake All My Youth. It’s a fitting name for their EP, as every second it seems your foot is tapping and or your head is nodding along.
A year after their EP release, they are back with their newest single “So Cruel.” out on Votiv Records, which has a bit more modern sound compared to their 2014 EP. “So Cruel,” incorporates the sounds of Disclosure and Passion Pit, but gives it a twist truly unique. Matthew’s vocals shine over the horns and synths throughout the song, and even though its about heartbreak, its still a danceable, fun, loving song.
