Young the Giant possesses songwriting wisdom and craft far beyond that of a band whose oldest member is only 22. The California quintet is made up of guys who started playing music at a young age and have already amassed more indie-rock cred and mainstream clout than most players who have been at it twice as long. After winning an online contest in 2009, they got to open for Kings of Leon in Chicago, which opened a lot of doors. The band, which changed its name from the Jakes in 2009, displays quirky indie-rock rhythms mixed with Sameer Gadhia's soulful, lounge-singer croon, creating moving and poignant ballads with just a hint of danceability. Just off a nationwide tour with Minus the Bear, Young the Giant is set to have a long and successful musical career, as long as the allure of going back to college doesn't get in the way.
