Scandinavians do Pop right. Case and point is Norway’s Young Dreams collective, and their titular track, “Young Dreams”. They draw you in with a alt-rock guitar opening, then snap you into place at a beach with hazy heat swirls and crashing waves. I’m especially giddy when the twittering strings are paired with the lead-footed kick drum around the 2:50 mark. If you’re in Europe you can catch the band on tour right now with Sondre Lerche.
Young Dreams is releasing their debut album mid-year 2012 via the promising Modular People label, but expect an EP featuring “Young Dreams” and a few other new songs in April!
