Cruel Young Heart is a Dance Pop/Rock band, hailing from Vancouver, B.C. similar to bands like the Killers, and Dragonette.Cruel Young Heart contains thick drums and catchy lyrics, with a smooth blend of dance synth and guitars. The band is described as pop rock with heart.
The three-piece band includes James Blackmon on vocals, Andrew Blackmon on drums and Mark Armstrong on guitar. Cruel Young Heart is becoming known as a band whose style and character are as appealing as their music. With their aesthetically enjoyable live shows and catchy hook driven songs they are poised to take pop music for a joyride.
Recently they have been reviewed by the Province for their performance at the Judas Priest After Show as the band with “the carefree energy with which the catchy music broaches matters of the heart evokes a male- led Dragonette or a young, unpolished version of The Killers.”
