Exclusive: Listen to Brand-New Young Love Song


In 2007, Young Love's excellent debut album failed to leave a lasting mark in the pop charts after the band was hailed as Jay-Z's latest big signing. Proof once again that good music and striking new talent doesn't always get recognized due to the lack of proper marketing and radio placement, which is still vital for new acts to succeed in the mainstream.

After touring, touring and touring in the U.S. and Europe, Young Love's lanky frontman Dan Keyes locked himself up in a studio to make some new music together with producer John King from the Dustbrothers. The result of their teaming is Young Love's new album, titled "One Of Us," which will be released in March.

Listen to the brand-new Young Love track "Black Boots" to get an idea what Keyes and King have been spending their time on. It is a confident arena filler with jagged guitars, an anthemic bassline, subtle electro stylings and a very catchy, sing-along chorus. Surprising is that electro breakdown towards the end of the song with some crafty vocal layering and a burping synth effect . Erasure would be so proud. (Head over to Young Love's MySpace page to hear more new tracks.)

"erasure would be so proud"

are you kidding me?

Young Love opened for Erasure during Erasure's last USA tour. Is this reviewer completely oblivious?! sad.
