Young Empires is a feel good indie band coming from Toronto. Their first single Rain of Gold is pure magic. The upbeat rhythm makes you feel happy right from the start. I just love them, especially because they use rather rare instruments like a pan-flute. These guys sound like Cut Copy back in the days, and that's something we can only encourage. Enjoy.
Not long ago they released a new album called 'Mine is yours'. It is the best album I've heard in 2011. I love the voice of Nathan Willett and his lyrics. The song you hear below is called Broken Open, one of the outsiders on the album. You have more known numbers like 'Royal Blue', 'Mine is yours' and 'Louder than ever'. But I'm sure this track is equal to these numbers.
It's a really good album so go and get it!
