Young Empires – “So Cruel”

Young Empires – “So Cruel”

On their new single “So Cruel,” the Toronto synthpoppers Young Empires go into slinky dance-music overdrive, sounding something like Passion Pit might if they spent some serious time in Berlin’s finer house-music establishments. It’s a beautifully blippy and streamlined song, and I would bet money on it appearing in some sort of television commercial within the next six months, though you shouldn’t hold that against it. This is some top-shelf festival-pop, and you can hear it below.

The “So Cruel” single is out now on Pirates Blend Records in Canada and Votiv Music elsewhere.
