Exclusive Stream - Givers, 'Up Up Up'

By Tim Chester

Posted on 11 May 11


Well this is bright and breezy. The latest thing to bolt from the Glassnote stable in the US (following The Temper Trap, Two Door Cinema Club, and Phoenix) are Givers, a very giving troupe of joyous indie popsters who will appeal to fans of any of the aforementioned.


'Up Up Up' sees big turn-that-frown-upside-down choruses and twinkling xylophones bounce merrily on a stompy beat that can't decide if it wants to go slow or fast, an excellent intro single informed by the Zydeco of their native Lafayette, Louisiana and fine-tuned by Animal Collective's Ben Allen. This summer's 'My Girls'? Quite possibly.

Their track's out on July 4th. MySpace
