band crush: givers
get hyped up on louisiana pop.
Givers is a band that's been slowly building buzz since their formation back in 2009, but thanks to major exposure and a slew of new tracks, they're rising fast. Coincidentally, their first single is called "Up, up, up," and it's a hyped-up, poppy tune that reminds us of their former touring partners but with a slight twist (think Ra Ra Riot meets Mates of State).
Almost all of the members of this Louisiana quintet are multi-instrumentalists, but there's no fuzzy, muddy sound here- it's the opposite. Songs like "In My Eyes" off their debut EP is clear, fresh, and just plain fun. They've just signed to Glassnote Records and are working on a full-length release for later this year. Until then, download "Up, up, up" below!
