californian quintet, young the giant release their self-titled debut album through roadrunner records. the band successfully negotiated their first trip to the uk in early february with the release of their debut 7" single, 'apartment', through indie label, young and lost club. young the giant write the sort of soaring, melodic rock 'n' roll that's bound for greatness. from the jolting percussion and anthemic chorus of 'my body' to the lovesick fervor of 'cough syrup' to the uptempo, sun-stained pop of 'i got,' the california five-piece's stunning debut features an arresting collection of songs that announce the presence of a vital new band. 'islands' marries off-kilter jazz rhythms with vocalist sameer gadhia's haunting falsetto to create an unnerving effect; the electric slide guitar that punctuates 'street walker' shrouds the song's dance beats in mystery; and it's impossible to interpret the wall of chiming guitars in 'twelve fingers' as anything less than pure joy.
