The Indie Pop Tour Of Summer 2019
Young the Giant and their label mates Fitz and the Tantrums are providing the ultimate live soundtrack of the summer thanks to a mammoth co-headline jaunt, bringing their respective feel good tunes to outdoor arenas across North America. Formed in California in 2004, Young The Giant cut their teeth in the state's indie pop scene under the moniker The Jakes before releasing their first album under their new name in 2010. Eight years later, they're heading to the stage armed with fresh new upbeat material from their fourth studio offering Mirror Master.
Inspired by old school Motown and stax records, Fitz and The Tantrums fuses fizzing neo soul and pop together on a glorious debut entitled Picking Up The Pieces in 2010. Its breakout single Money Grabber served as the perfect blue print for further smash hit singles, all of which feature bold-as-brass pop hooks, hand clap-inducing rhythms and anthemic, soaring, singable choruses. They hit commercial gold with their self-titled latest album's retro-glam atmosphere and pop jugular melodies.
