Young the Giant and Ra Ra Riot are playing at the Sound Academy on September 21st!
Young the Giant is an indie rock band from California that formed back in 2004. They are releasing their third record on August 12th and have already released a couple of singles. My favourite track off their new album, Home of the Strange, is called “Something to Believe in”. If you haven't heard it yet, take a listen here!
Ra Ra Riot is one of my all time favourite bands. My father and I drove all the way to Montreal just to see them because I wasn’t old enough to see them play in Toronto. It was a great little road trip filled with father and daughter bonding time. I also recently saw them when they came to Toronto a couple of months ago. They are a super fun and unique band. They have a violin and a bass player which is very different for an indie rock band. My favourite song off their new album, Need Your Light, is called “Water”, which was a produced with the help of Vampire Weekend’s Rostam. It’s a really cool track and if you haven’t heard it, listen to it here!
