The Truth About Music

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

Band to Watch: Young the Giant

I won’t lie and say that I’ve been following this band for years. In fact, I only found out about the band about a week ago. In that time I’ve really enjoyed their sound. They have a very full rock sound, relying heavily on an anthem style chorus to carry songs like “My Body” and “12 Fingers.” There is some very light harmonizing that barely comes through but helps to accent the often screech happy guitar parts.

A melting pot of musicians, the band members are very diverse in both ethnicity and sound, helping to add further layers to an already deep groove. With roots in Irvine, California, the band seems poised to make an indie rock style run if one of their singles can catch fire. Look for this band as we move into the spring of 2011.
