Young the Giant

Formerly known as the Jakes, Young the Giant began making eclectic indie rock in Irvine, California, where bandmates Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drummer) all met each other during high school. Following graduation, the guys ditched their respective bands and formed their own outfit, drawing upon their European and Middle Eastern roots to forge a worldly, summery sound. Although the boys left Orange County shortly thereafter to attend different colleges, they continued making music together, eventually deciding to put school on hold and focus on the group instead. The decision wasn’t in vain; by early 2009, they were opening for Kings of Leon and playing shows at South by Southwest. Several months later, they were signed to Roadrunner Records.

The Jakes changed their names in January 2010 and began working on an album with producer Joe Chiccarelli, tracking most of the songs at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles. Featuring cameos by My Morning Jacket’s Bo Koster and Jellyfish’s Roger Manning, the self-titled debut was released digitally later that year. Worldwide promotion of the album continued well into 2011 as it took until the summer to make it physically available in most territories. Numerous TV appearances -- most notably a performance on the MTV Video Music Awards show -- helped to propel the album and the accompanying single "My Body" into the U.S., U.K., Dutch, and Italian charts.

Sessions for a second full-length began with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen in summer 2013. The resulting album, the heavier Mind Over Matter, arrived in January 2014. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

I Don't Think Young The Giant Has Made A Song That I Didn't Like
I'm not sure if there's a song they've done that I haven't liked. A lot. It's pretty remarkable that their debut album was followed up by such a strong second album.
Love this band soo much I want to go to one of their concerts maybe all of them totally worth the wait for their albums

I LOVE THIS BAND!!! :)
My Body song sound like The Beautiful People by M.Manson when it starts and then has a beach boy rythm as well
I remember when I found them and they were such a small band with a fan base of 2,000 people... I loved them...
Can't believe they are from California- LOVE this!

True.... However, SOMETHING about his voice reminds me a bit of Bowie as well.
AMAZING!

The first three or four times I heard the song Cough Syrup I could have sworn I was listening to a new Jimmy Eat World song. It's uncanny how similar the vocalists are. Even the drums and the guitar smack of influence.

Bought their first album two years ago and I loved it. Saw them at ACL. I think I heard one of their songs on the radio, how far they've come.. Their new sound is not as appealing to me as before but still very good.
Creative and powerful. I love the music and can't believe Mind over matter is as good as their first effort. It is great to see follow through. Great job guys!
I truely love these guys. I think an ex of mine showed them to me, ol' high school crush stuff. Well, I didn't realize the impact they were going to make on me, but every time one of their songs come on, i just shift my whole everything. Their new album is sporatic but i think it is the self titled freshman album they made that did it, it truely signifies the spirit and emotion of this band. Whew, okay im done. GO YTG
This is so scary, don't try this because it doesn't really work, you are all gullible fools.
1. Make out with your hand (the more slobber the better)
2. Wipe it on your crush's face
3. Stab them with a pencil
4. Staple your face to a table in a public area
5. Scream "REDRUM" as loud as possible, over and over again
6. You'll be hospitalized for being a psychotic loony! How cool!
Kiss your hand ten times say your crushes name fifteen times and post this on two songs then look at your hand
I LOVE THIS SONG and band SO please follow me(;
That's it. They're now one of my favorite bands. I'm listening to Cough Syrup as I type and wow
