This CD realizes the plans of singer/songwriter and frontman Dan Keyes to find the place where rock, dance and pop could co-exist. Attack! We keep it on the dance floor Discotech, intones the single, providing the first glimpse into the world of Young Love. Flirting with rock n’ roll and club attitude, Too Young To Fight It is pop confection that could fit comfortably into the New York underground rock scene, without ever emulating it. The new tracks were danceable, unpredictable, poppy and thematic. They were, in essence, the origins of what would become Young Love. Actually, says Keyes, ‘a lot of these songs are just about nightlife, and the other half are about love.’ ‘It all sounds really positive, even if you really listen to the lyrics and see that it’s not always the case. Ultimately, Too Young To Fight It is the break that Keyes has been working toward for years, he says I’m excited to get them out there. And I hope people get excited by them: I feel like I’m just the instrument to give the songs to everyone.’

2009 release from the New York-based singer/songwriter Dan Keyes AKA Young Love. Something happened in the intervening years since you last heard Young Love. Sure, Dan Keyes is still masterminding music that sets dancefloors ablaze, but since the release of 2007’s excellent Too Young To Fight It, there’s been a shift, a subtle but assured transmogrification in Keyes that manifests itself in each carefully chosen chord, each deliberately delivered lyric. From the sound of One of Us, what Keyes wanted musically and lyrically was a record that is at once energetic and contemplative, moving audiences seamlessly from a dancefloor packed with strangers to a room filled with friends.
