Every year there are a couple bands that roll through our studio and totally – and unexpectedly – blow me away.
GIVERS was one of those bands. Their vibe was pure and utter joy, best captured in their song “Up Up Up” – which is like a espresso shot of happiness. I thought it was the perfect summer song…but then I heard the CSS remix. The Brazilian band takes the song straight to the dancefloor and give it another level of fun.
If you want to take a shot at your own remix, the band is offering up their stems on Soundcloud.
GIVERS played on KCRW in June (find it in the archives, and get a taste of their Louisiana charm) and their album “In Light” is out on Glassnote Records (home to Phoenix, Mumford & Sons etc…)
