CD Review: Young The Giant Debut Album

Newcomers Young The Giant will release their debut album on January 25 on Roadrunner Records. The band's first single "Apartment" is steadily rising up the alternative charts. The band will begin their national headlining tour on January 18 in Allston, MA.

The album mixes influences of alternative rock (My Body, St. Walker) with bits of reggae (I Got, Islands) as the album's overall sound should appeal to the masses. The album's lead-off song "Apartment" only scratches the surface of how good this band sounds. The catchy melody of "Strings" and "Cough Syrup" are hard to forget as you find yourself singing the chorus. Young The Giant should find a long stay on the charts with the pop sounds of "Your Side" and "Guns Out."
