This came on during my workout mix this morning and it got me pretty pumped. So much so that I’ve been listening to it quite a bit since. You’ve probably heard the anthemic song from Irvine’s Young the Giant, and if you have, enjoy it as we get closer to kicking off the weekend. If not, roll down the windows wherever you are and blast it.
The California band features Sameer Gadhia (lead vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitars), Eric Cannata (guitars), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and François Comtois (drums). They’re reminiscent of Kings of Leon. They have a lot of the better qualities before KOL broke through.
Frontman Sameer Gadhia’s impassioned vocals in My Body make the hard-rocking song an easy one to listen to on repeat. There’s a sense of urgency every time, making it easy to let go and sing/scream in the car or pump you up when you’re working out. Repeatedly.
