‘In Light’ is the blindingly appropriate name for the debut album from Louisiana’s GIVERS. ‘In Light’ will be released 10th October 2011 on Glassnote. (Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Kele, Two Door Cinema Club, The Temper Trap). Blessed with two vocalists and a million musical ideas, GIVERS are a band to fill your ears, hips and heart with uplift and sunshine.
GIVERS home town Louisiana is like no other American state. Named after a French king, it’s a fertile melting pot of French, Cajun, Spanish, Native American and African cultures. The Bayou State oozes history, heritage, myth, magic – and a proud, defiant independence. And if you want to hear music of the bayou which has been updated, rebooted, rocked-up, reenergised and mixed in with another vibrant regionalist musical form, Zydeco, then please be upstanding. Because once you hear the exuberant likes of ‘Up Up Up’ and ‘Meantime’ you won’t be sitting for long. Salute to the party music of 2011.
“Up Up Up is a wonderfully upbeat exercise in afro-beat rhythms, summery keyboards and excitable vocals”- NME
“Up Up UP chimes like a club 18-30 Yeasayer, adrenaline in its veins and the nearest house party in its sights. Glorious”- Q
