The result is a track that recalls Arcade Fire's "Black Wave/Bad Vibrations" in its choral sound as well as some comparable lyrics. But Martin is hesitant to cite any concrete musical influences, saying, "I think we really wanted to create something of our own style and sound."
By early next year, Youngblood Hawke will debut a full-length album and support English band Keane on a national tour. "We [just] can't believe we're here," Katz sums up, "following our dreams."
Youngblood Hawke performs tonight at the KROQ Locals Only Showcase at The Roxy.
