‘Youthful Dreams of an Old Empire’ is the stunning debut EP from Montreal based sextet Your Favourite Enemies. Youthful Dreams of an Old Empire’ showcases their blend of alternative, shoegaze, new prog and brooding noise rock, in places reminiscent of The Raveonettes and Crocodiles.
The band are fierce human rights advocates who remain dedicated to their old school DIY ethos on which they established the foundations of the band. This includes starting their own label Hopeful Tragedy Records and turning a Catholic Church into their own recording studio where they record all of their own material, including ‘Youthful Dreams of an Old Empire.’
Combining powerful riffs and strong harmonies with frontman Alex Foster’s introspective lyrics, Your Favourite Enemies’ unique fusion of sonic textures show a distinctive social conscience and symbolist approach.
