IN THE SPOTLIGHT: YOUNG THE GIANT

With their first two singles, up-tempo tracks "My Body" and "Cough Syrup," garnering radio, television and film play, indie rock band YOUNG THE GIANT are hoping the rest of the world will be swept away by their refreshing, new, and exhilarating sound.
Formed in Irvine, California in 2004 as The Jakes, the band went through a few line-up changes before settling on Young The Giant, with Sameer Gadhia on vocals, Francois Comtois on drums, Payam Doostzadeh on bass and Jacob Tilley and Eric Cannata on guitar. Watch and listen to their songs below in full acoustic mode.


MY BODY can't quit listening to this song. I love the lead singer sound voice...kinda reminds me Pablo Nutini voice- raspy, rock and soul voice!


COUGH SYRUP not a day goes by that i don't listen to this song! Totally underrated band, and I hope they totally blow up this year!!


ISLANDS their voices and tunes are like all the delicious parts of a fruit salad. Healthy to the soul and tasteful to the ears!
