Artist Of The Day: Young Statues
The band just recently released a cover EP, containing songs originally by influences and favorites of the members such as Ryan Adams and New Order. It's tough for anyone to cover songs by artists as well known and acclaimed as these, but Young Statues succeeded with flying colors. The band's momentum just keeps on going, as the band also has a brand new EP (produced by The Early November's Ace Enders) out in March. They've been playing a few of those songs at recent live shows, and from what I heard of the tracks, there's definitely less of the alt-country influence from the self-titled album and it leans more towards a more rocking feel. At the same time, the band sounded the most focused they've been yet. We should be hearing more about that EP soon, so keep your eye out on the band's Facebook page. We also have an interview coming with the band later this week, but for now you can download the band's new Christmas song for free download.
