Young Blood Hawke

Youngblood Hawke is an indie rock band based in Los Angeles, California
Both Simon Katz and Sam Martin were in the band Iglu & Hartly, but after a 2011 hiatus, the two reformed with three of their long-time friends to form Youngblood Hawke
Their name is taken from the Herman Wouk novel of the same name
In October of 2011 before landing a record deal with Universal Republic, Youngblood had a residency at The Satellite in Los Angeles
Aside from that, the group has performed at SXSW, playing showcases such as Comedy Central Workaholics showcase and Purevolume House
The band is based in Silverlake, Los Angeles where they are working on their debut album and have worked odd jobs on the side during the recording process
Their music has been described as "maximalist pop"

Cut from the same colorful cloth as upbeat indie pop contemporaries like Fun., Jukebox the Ghost, Walk the Moon, and Imagine Dragons, Youngblood Hawke, named after a 1961 Herman Wouk novel based on the life of Thomas Wolfe, was formed in 2011 by former members of new wave revivalists Iglu and Hartly. Featuring the talents of longtime friends Sam Martin and Simon Katz, along with Tasso Smith, Alice Katz, and Nik Hughes, the Los Angeles-based quintet's sunny disposition and adherence to life-affirming, danceable electro-pop impressed Universal Republic, who signed the group and released their eponymous debut EP in 2012. In 2013, Youngblood Hawke returned with their first full-length album, Wake Up.
