Young Dreams :: "Young Dreams"

Taking a page out of the Free Energy playbook in the eponymous naming of their debut single, Norwegian outfit Young Dreams lift their sonic influences from Vampire Weekend's glittering world pop and tribalism that makes the second half of Lord Huron's songs so satisfying. A recent signee to Modular People, the band just Friday released their first free promotional single. This goes a long way to say something simple: "Young Dreams", initially built on a lonely guitar line, eventually opens wide like an updated Rhythm of the Saints, centering on the lyric, "We'll live forever". The architecture is warm and dusty, synth loops pulse and drums pound and the guitar ascension rings joyful. The final act coheres all these influences, revealing a panting and brilliant conclusion which - and these are their ideas - we'll assume is immortal.
