“We Are Young” might sound familiar, as it’s been recently used in several major ad campaigns – Chevrolet Orlando, Skechers, Google, and the Little League World Series. Australian singer/songwriter Vassy has a playful, yet husky and soulful, voice which is quite memorable as well, especially for those who heard her belt out the recent club hit “History.” In its original version, the uptempo dancehall reggae vibe of “We Are Young” is punctuated with an infectious hand-clap rhythm and an “oh oh oh” chant – the perfect background for Vassy’s dynamic voice (which channels a young Billie Holiday). For the clubs, remixes by Dave Aude, Ivan Gomez, Dirty Freqs, and Reidiculous are now making the rounds – each with a unique sound fitting just about every commercial club genre (electro, classic house, chainsaw, and stadium house). Equipped with a graphically edgy video, watch for “We Are Young” to heat up clubs all winter long.
