Young Empires are a new Canadian 3-piece that has garnered international critical acclaim and since their inception in
October 2009. NME Magazine compared Young Empires' sound to the likes of The Killers, Arcade Fire, Yeasayer, and
Foals. Defined by swirling synthesizer tones, fervent bass rhythms, and soulful guitar licks, Young Empires deliver fresh,
yet distinguished dance tracks full of swagger, sexuality, and occasionally a little angst.
A long with music blogs, Young Empires have also been well-received in the fashion world including a feature in Dazed & Confused Magazine. Their song "Glory of the Night" was released on Parisian fashion/music label Kitsune Maison 10. Another track "Against the Wall" has been featured on a viral fashion video for Nylon TV.
Young Empires' still young career highlights include international performances in London, Paris, Stockholm, New York City, Chicago, Miami, Bogota, Toronto, and Montreal. They've supported acts such as Jamiroquai, Chromeo, Dragonette,
Japandroids, Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Jamaica, and Tanlines. Young Empires' live performance at the NXNE Festival was named in the top 10 out of over 500 bands.
The trio is also distinguished for their production skills and been commissioned to remix major label singles for Geffen
and Kitsune Records. Their home demo recordings have charted on FM4 Radio (Germany) and two separate home
demos have reached the top 15 on HypeMachine's charts; a feat that earned them a spot on the HypeMachine
showcase at CMJ this year.
With their debut EP, Wake All My Youth, dropping in early 2012 on Pirates Blend Records Young Empires are poised to deliver on many reviewers predictions as one of the top new artists to watch.

We met when we were 5 years old in a Tee Ball league, and have gone to school together from first grade to college. We try to make music that we would like to listen to. Usually it features vocal harmonies, lots of reverb and noise, a mix of electronic and live percussion, and jangly guitars.
