Young Love is an American dance-rock band formed in 2005 in New York City, New York. The band is composed of Dan Keyes who handles the majority of the production and songwriting in addition to providing lead vocals. Young Love's debut full-length album, Too Young to Fight It was released on January 30, 2007 in the United States.
In September, two short promotional videos were released for the single "Discotech". The single was also featured on the FIFA 07 soundtrack.

In December, Young Love played several shows with British MC Lady Sovereign.
In early January 2007, Billboard listed Young Love as one of "2007's Best Bets" for the year, and described their album as "...the kind of pop that we've been missing: melodic, catchy, smart and as young and in love-with the ubiquitous 'she'-as Romeo...". On January 3, 2007, MTV premiered the video for the band's newest single, "Find A New Way". In addition, the single will serve as the theme song for the network's new Jennifer Lopez-produced reality series, DanceLife, which premiered January 15, 2007.
January 30, 2007 was the official release of Young Love's full-length debut, Too Young to Fight It. The album includes both "Discotech" and "Tragedy" along with nine more original songs. In February, the band will start a tour, playing shows with several different acts including Foreign Islands, Moros Eros and Federalist. On April 29, 2007, the band signed with Konspiracy Theory Music to better promote themselves.
