My Body


This is one of the more anthemic things to pop up on indie radio recently. Marking the arrival of Young the Giant as an extremely promising band. In the words of singer Sameer Gadhia, ” [It] really embodies Young the Giant: a combination of youthful energy and slightly naïve but optimistic determination. It captures a sense of passion, urgency and excitement that we’ve felt throughout the writing and recording process.” Accurate. It doesn’t make much sense, but it’s not supposed to – it’s all about uplifting energy. It’s a great song for doing some fast driving. “We are a dynamic band, musically we have a wide variety and our live shows celebrate the highs and lows of the human experience. There are full-on rock moments and tracks that’ll make you groove and dance and some more subdued introspective moments.” says Gadhia (in an interview with Vogue India.) There you have it. Young the Giant are based in Irvine, California. Their second album was released last year. Morrissey calls himself a fan. High praise indeed. Let’s see what they do next. (And by the way, it’s about time we had an Indian-American rock star!)(A really cute one.)
