Youngblood Hawke We Come Running

Youngblood Hawke is an indie pop band based in Los Angeles.

Formed by Simon Katz and Sam Martin (Iglu & Hartly) and rounded out by Simon’s childhood best friend Tasso Smith on guitar, with Alice Katz on backup vocals and live percussion, and the Iglu & Hartly touring drummer Nik Hughes, the band began releasing material and booking local gigs around the Los Angeles area in early 2011.

Youngblood Hawke smallBased on the strength of their tunes and a completely organic buzz, they sold out a string of nights at Silverlake hotspot, Satellite.  Soon afterwards, Universal Republic Records contacted them and offered up a deal.

Their eponymous 2012 album release spawned the single “We Come Running” which features the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir during the chorus. The song received air-play across the U.S. and became the iTunes “Single of the Week” in August 2012. The single will be released in the UK on 5th August.

The band opened for Keane’s Strangeland Tour of America in January 2013.

The band will be playing three UK dates this July:

  • Jul 05 Club NME @ Koko London
    Jul 06 The Soup Kitchen Manchester
  • Jul 09 Hoxton Bar & Kitchen London
