GIVERS puts ants in my pants and makes me do the boogie dance.
This Lafayette, Louisiana five-piece makes music that is pure, unadulterated fun, perfect for fans of Vampire Weekend. It's clear that GIVERS is heavily influenced by the native music of their hometown and neighboring New Orleans. Add afro-pop, indie, and funk flavors on top of all that, and you get a medley of finger lickin' goodness. The song's title tells no lies: it makes you get up.
GIVERS - Up, Up, Up
GIVERS supported Dirty Projectors on a fall tour, and they are prepped to hit up SXSW this March.
The GIVERS EP is out now, and you can expect the band's first LP next year. Don't know about you, but I'm on pins and needles.
