I’m not sure how I slept on Orange County five-piece Young the Giant. Their guitar harmonies melt in your ears, not your hands. Their songs are catchy and well constructed. And lead singer Sameer Gadhia’s smooth-as-butter vocals grab hold and won’t let go. Really, the band’s appeal is undeniable, which could be a credit to the fact they worked with the same producer that worked with The Strokes, Minus The Bear and My Morning Jacket.
Their self-titled LP has been out in digital form since October of 2010, but the physical copy of the record comes out on Jan. 25. Check out some tunes and videos below. I’ll be seeing them here in Columbus on Jan. 27 at The Basement. You should check them out live as well!
