Despite only existing for a year and a half, Toronto’s Young Empires is a leader in their self described genre of “world beat haute rock”. The trio of Robert Aaron Ellingson, Jake Palahnuk and Matthew Vlahovich have received international acclaim for their infectious hooks and high-energy sets. Spinner described their emergence as â€œalmost fully formed with their rock star moves well-honed and their cred firmly cemented.â€ The band’s also been turning heads in the fashion industry with their song â€œGlory of the Nightâ€ (released on Parisian fashion/music label Kitsune Maison 10) and the track â€œAgainst the Wallâ€ has been featured on a viral fashion video for NYLON TV.
