Watch Youngblood Hawke's PureVolume Sessions ft. "We Come Running" + "Stars"

Share on Tumblr

Following the release of their self-titled EP and the breakout single "We Come Running," the buzz surrounding indie-pop outfit Youngblood Hawke continues growing daily. The quintet recently popped into our studios for a PV Session, and these acoustic renditions of their synth-friendly, sunny pop tunes only prove Youngblood Hawke will long outlast the hype. 

The fiercly melodic "We Come Running" features some skilled harmonies to begin with, but this stripped down version only allows them to be emphasized that much more. It's also a treat to see how the band handle the various dynamics in sound armed with minimal equipment. Meanwhile, the equally hooky "Stars" bolsters harmonies at the forefront and jangling guitars fused with dreamy keys.

Watch both videos below and stay tuned for the last song from their set, next week (edit: Click here to view Part II with "Forever" live)!
