Wake Up Review

by Matt Collar

The debut from California indie pop buzz band Youngblood Hawke, 2013's Wake Up is an infectious, bombastic party album perfect for the summer months. Centered around vocalist Sam Martin and guitarist Simon Katz, Youngblood Hawke make dancey, often hummable melodic pop songs that bring to mind a mix of the new wave-influenced sound of MGMT, the slick studio pop of fun., and the psychedelic pop of the Flaming Lips. Included on Wake Up are such singles as "We Come Running" and "Stars (Hold On)."
