Toronto’s Young Empires are offering a three-song preview of a debut album that draws from ageless themes of love, loss, rebirth, and redemption. Combining late-night soul, Technicolor pop, and vibey beats, the trio has crafted a mature departure from the songs included on 2012’s Wake All My Youth EP.
Viral hits “The Gates” and “So Cruel” are now joined with new track, “Sunshine,” on this sampler. An upbeat composition that combines fluid vocals and captivating melodies with bouncy drums, “Sunshine” arrives just in time for the summer.
“With luminous, reverbing synths and pinched vocals… Young Empires… [delivers] indie-pop delicacy…’”
