If you haven’t heard it already, you’re sure to over the next couple of summer months – Youngblood Hawke’s debut track, ‘We Come Running,’ has already had over 2.2 million views on YouTube and has been chosen by Coca-Cola to be the sound of their next worldwide ad campaign.

Pretty impressive, eh? But who are Youngblood Hawke?

The female-fronted, LA quintet kicked off 2013 supporting Keane on the US leg of their Strangeland Tour, followed by a Passion Pit tour and a series of shows at SXSW, including an exclusive Spotify live stream event with Kendrick Lamar. This summer they embarked on a headline US tour along with a few shows over here.

We caught up with the band and asked for their perfect summer tunes.


'We Come Running' is taken from Youngblood Hawke's new album Wake Up, out August 5.

Words: Bob Palmer.
