Young Empires is Matthew Vlahovich, Jacob Palahnuk and Taylor Hill from Toronto.
Despite new single ‘The Gates’ sounding like a sparkling melodic indie track, it has a deeper meaning for the trio, who describe the track as being “…essentially about fighting through depression and self-doubt… understanding and accepting that things will never be perfect. It suggests that by uniting with those around us (that may or not struggle with same), we can overcome this feeling of isolation that is so commonplace in this world.”
The track is produced by Stephen Kozmeniuk (Kendrick Lamar, The Game, Hurts).
