I’ve been listening to Youngblood Hawke for about a year now after I was turned onto their music through work. Youngblood Hawke is an LA based band that creates indie-pop melodies and productions that stick with you for days on end. They recently just released We Come Running as their first single after signing with Republic Records. You might have heard it in the background of a few recent commercials. The EP also titled We Come Running was released about 4 months ago on iTunes. You can check it out here.
Singles: We Come Running
Sarah’s Favorites: Rootless (on the new EP) and Dannyboy (an oldie but a goodie can be downloaded for free here from PureVolume)
Fun Fact: Band members Simon Katz and Sam Martin were in the band Iglu and Hartly before forming Youngblood Hawke in 2011. YBH are currently on tour with Passion Pit.
Check out the video for We Come Running. The band scuba dives, swims and manages to perform underwater all the while playing an American flag guitar and wearing American flag pants (which I want.)
