Every year, music fans look forward to some of their favorite bands releasing new material. Discovering a new band and falling in love with their art is one of the best feelings a true music lover can have.
Givers, from Lafayette Louisiana, and their album In Light are spectacular. A young band full of multi-instrumentalists create some amazing sounds that make you think of Talking Heads, Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend. Taylor Guarisco and Tif Lamson trade vocal duties all over the record which translates well in a live setting. One of the great examples of that is on “Up Up Up” the lead track and a summer hit:
“Saw You First” and “Words” are stand outs on an album full of stand outs. Most songs clock in around 5 minutes but they never feel long and keep you interested the whole way through. While there are jams on In Light, they are calculated and come full circle each time. This is an extremely fun album that stands up after multiple listens.
We hope you enjoy becoming familiar with Givers this week.
