Back in September 2010, I featured a band on "Don't Sleep On" by the name of GIVERS out of Lafayette, Louisiana. Then a fews day later we featured their song "Up Up Up" on New Music Wednesday. I also mentioned that you will hear from this band in future. Well, it is the future.
The five piece band who blends electronic, african, pop and a dash of cajun & zydeco into a sonic gumbo were recently signed to Glassnote Records back in February. The label is the home to such artists as Mumford & Sons, Two Door Cinema Club, The Temper Trap, Phoenix, and more.
GIVERS will recently announced that June 7 will be the released date for their debut album "In Light." The album was mixed by Ben Allen (The Constellations, Cee-Lo, Animal Collective) as well as Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear). GIVER are going on tour and will be performing at Schubas in Chicago on June 24.
If you can't wait for their debut release, you can grab their 2009 EP via iTunes now.
