AA Loves: Young the Giant

Los Angeles natives, Young the Giant, could easily be the product of a United Colors of Benetton ad considering that the five piece band has members with ethnic backgrounds that include Indian, Persian, British, and French-Canadian. However, instead of being the poster-child for ethnic diversity they are burgeoning gods of rock.

From the opening bass line pulses of “My Body” to the burst of guitars before the vocals enter, it is immediately obvious that these Indie boys mean business. They’ve got big ideas and a big sound to match with soaring anthemic melodies that are clearly the product of the beautiful California sun.

Tapping into the creative juices that come from living on the scenic beaches of Southern California, they spent 7 months in their beach house writing and recording their first full length album which drops October 26th.

Be sure to grab their album when it comes out, and if you’re so inclined you can pre-order it on iTunes. Those who pre-order will actually receive a call from the band itself. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Also, be sure to check out their brand new single, "Strings," which just came out on the 12th. It's kind of a lot of amazing. The acoustic version is below.
