“Cider of the Sun,” by Los Angeles newcomers Young Empress, will gutpunch you from the opening notes, as the band merges the harder edge of alternative like Arcade Fire with the folk flourishes of Decemberists. The song is incredibly repeatable, building from a thunder of drums and guitars to add haunting vocals, particularly at the chorus: “I want you stay with me … I never want you to disappear,” the male-female duo sing as strings and hints of keyboards build behind them. “We will outshine the sun.” This song certainly shines bright, and bodes well for what this band could do when they really get cracking.
