Even before releasing their first record, Lafayette, Louisiana band GIVERS has received an impressive amount of recognition. GIVERS has been praised by PASTE magazine, Stereogum, and was even named one of the “Ten Bands that Rocked South by Southwest” by TIME magazine. GIVERS just released Up Up Up, the first single off their upcoming debut, In Light, which comes out in early June.
Listening to this track it’s easy to see what all of the buzz is about. Up Up Up is a great song to kick off your summer, with an amazingly catchy chorus, homegrown guitar, tinkling piano, and a signature indie hand-clap beat that can’t get out of your head. It’s a feel good song with just the right combination of folk and pop. The song escalates from vocals and simple drums to an energetic indie-pop chorus, and definitely makes GIVERS a band to keep an eye on.
