Fueled by a fierce chemistry and brother-like camaraderie, Red Bank, New Jersey-based foursome Young Rising Sons deliver anthemic alt-rock that’s uplifting and infectious but unshakably honest. As heard on their debut single “High,” lead singer/guitarist Andy Tongren, lead guitarist Dylan Scott, bassist Julian Dimagiba, and drummer Steve Patrick give serious depth to their stylish, summery sound through fearless recognition of life’s less-than-sunny moments.
Young Rising Sons builds off the band’s pop-perfect sense of songcraft with left-of-center touches like fuzzed-out bass lines and deep electro beats. Bound by a love of melody-minded songwriters like Tom Petty and high-energy punk bands such as Green Day, Young Rising Sons struggled to find considerable success with their music over the next few years, but continued to push forward with their songwriting and playing. Then, in late 2013, mutual friends introduced Tongren to New York based producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta, who were immediately floored by the scope of Tongren’s voice and quickly got to know the entire band. After signing with Dirty Canvas Music (Goodman and Accetta’s New York-based production company) and recording a batch of new songs, Young Rising Sons released “High” along with an accompanying black-and-white, laid-back, sweetly playful video shot in their home turf of New Jersey.
True to the band’s brotherly vibe, Young Rising Sons take a decidedly collaborative approach to the songwriting process, with Tongren and Scott serving as the main melodists and lyricists but all four members contributing ideas. While that all-for-one-and-one-for-all mentality forms the core of the band, just as essential to Young Rising Sons is instilling their songs with a certain down-to-earth optimism.
