It’s hard to believe that The Gates is Toronto trio, Young Empires‘ debut record. After the hype and success of their 2012 EP, Wake All My Youth, the band took their time to craft the perfect debut, making sure that it reflected maturity and who they are as people. A perfect combination of hard-hitting topics (“The Gates,” “Uncover Your Eyes”) and feel-good-anthems about love & being alive (“Never Die Young,” “Sunshine”) The Gates is the perfect electro-pop record to get lost in this fall. Press play and walk through The Gates below.
