Yes, they're young....but for their age, they have quite a connection to the audience. I was very drawn in. I can't find their Cats FD from U.S. Challenge Skate or Sectionals on YouTube, but shows it even more (it's on Ice Network).
The relationship between a connection with/to the music, with/to the audience and with/to each other can be very interesting. I've been thinking about Krylova and Ovsyannikov. They certainly had a good relationship with/to the music, but one thing about the two was they projected more to the audience than to each other. She in particular played much more to the audience than to her partner--so much so that my friend used to joke that she was like Gloria Swanson on crack. HUGE facial expressions and gestures. She definitely played to the last seat in the last row of the back balcony.
B/K programs I felt had good connection: (1994 OSP) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBwLKteo2BA, (1995 OD) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY9kHRjCsrQ, (1995 FD) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUQfbeF67LM
You can watch year after year how their connection seemed to melt away until 2002 when I felt they were skating together in name only: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfD8-3jWuiE
