Young The Giant
Home Of The Strange
ROCKS LIKE: Arctic Monkeys, Cold War Kids, Airborne Toxic Event
WHAT’S DIFFERENT: It took three albums, but Young The Giant figured out how to dabble in genres without sacrificing their signature moves. Home Of The Strange adds back their debut’s indie charm, then catapults Sameer Gadhia’s sensational vocals to the front. Keeping those levels in check allows the band to effortlessly explore ambient electronics (“Amerika”), dance numbers (“Silvertongue”) and every other curiosity along the way.
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Gadhia really is that good. Go YouTube any of his live sessions: No one’s hitting that balance of power and range with such a pleasant tone.
