Young the Giant, My Body
The members of Orange County, Calif., quintet Young the Giant might comprise a grab bag of cultural identity (lineages include Persian, Indian, British and French-Canadian), but the band members sport a sun-soaked sound clearly indebted to their hometown. "My Body," the lead single from the band's self-titled debut album, is representative of the group's charms, offering an infectious mix of stainless steel electric guitars, beefy drums and mammoth hooks. Vocalist Sameer Gadhia adapts a soulful, quivery drawl on the song's verses, but the singer channels his inner arena god on the chorus. "My body tells me no/But I won't quit 'cause I want more," he belts in a throaty zeal during the hedonistic refrain. While "Young the Giant" has been available online since October, its recent physical release and the chart growth of "My Body" is sure to raise the band's profile.
