Norway's Young Dreams are releasing their first single, "Fog Of War", off their forthcoming debut album, due in early 2013. You can grab the free download at Pitchfork. The "Fog of War" single will be available digitally this week; the USA market will get it tomorrow, October 16th.
Matias Tellez from Young Dreams, explained the song (even though he doesn't like telling people what a song is about): "If I have to say something about "Fog of War" it would be that it's about not seeing clearly what's happening on the other side. It creates a need for help in a desperate situation - hence "Fog of War" and the cry for help from Athena (Athene) who is the goddess of wisdom, courage and inspiration in Greek mythology."
The band is heading out to tour Europe with their label-mates Tame Impala.
