Youngblood Hawke brought the jubilant sounds of “We Come Running” to this morning’s episode of Big Morning Buzz Live. Scaled back a bit for the acoustic set–with no threat of approaching sharks, unlike the accompanying music video–the song is the lead single off their self-titled EP, and something you may have heard in an American Idol promo or two this winter. A stripped down version without the contributions from the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir (who recorded the studio version with the band) transforms the punching chorus into a more haunting refrain, backed by delicate percussion.
Scheduled in between sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, their stop by VH1 Headquarters was also a celebratory trip, as the L.A.-based band will be a featured VH1 You Oughta Know artists in the coming months. Stay tuned!
