about

The young hearts of this band are far from failing. – Uptown Magazine

Where Red Wolf Glass, Projektor’s debut full-length, was ethereal and spacious, Young Hearts Fail rings truer to its name, sounding like a tightly-wound rock machine ... did I really just say that? Some personnel changes in the band have brought about a more fleshed-out sense of instrumentation on this sophomore release, and the well-integrated synths and less in-your-face guitar lines make Young Hearts Fail a more pointed, dense release than its predecessor. The dark lyrics and spot-on rhythm section remain from Red Wolf Glass, and the band’s atmospherics are as plaintive and expansive as ever. Many of the tracks feel more grandiose this time around, retaining the introspection from the debut release, yet with a bit more of a kick. There’s definitely a starkly-lit arena rock characteristic to Young Hearts Fail - think a reverb and sweat soaked Sense Field or Failure bringin’ it to the kids. Highly recommended. - Stylus Magazine

Right from the intense sound barrage that opens Young Hearts Fail, the second album by Projektor, it’s clear that something is different. The sweet, almost-fey vocals are still high in the mix alongside thick waves of guitar, but where their debut, Red Wolf Glass, nearly drowned in its own reverberation, this effort has a crisp, decisive sound that makes it all the more immediate. The guitar solos have a darker edge, the vocals are more urgent and the sound is even more massive than their last effort. Throwing in a few emo signposts to offer a bit of all-ages cross-over potential, Young Hearts Fail is filled with an energy most Canadian bands of this ilk lack. By and large this album is a huge improvement over their already stellar debut. - FFWD Weekly
