Young Empires is a alternative rock band from Toronto, Ontario. In September 2015, Young Empires released The Gates. One of the tracks off of the album is “Uncover Your Eyes“. The track begins with reverb-friendly piano and vocals before drums kick in to cue the rest of the band to join in. Young Empires uses dynamics extremely well to slowly build up “Uncover Your Eyes” into a full-band track. The track seamlessly transitions from soft verses to a monumental chorus before entering an atmospheric bridge.
Young Empires was recently nominated for a Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year. The band will be touring with UK artist, Banners, in late February. Tour dates can be found below:
