Tuned In: Young The Giant Are Hypnotic On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

by (@kat_george)

Young The Giant played “Cough Syrup” last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and they were simply hypnotic. With something of a young Kings Of Leon in the verses (sing “The Bucket” along with the first verse of “Cough Syrup” and you’ll see), Young The Giant are both familiar and new. Their referential (the choruses are reminiscent of The National) style is comfortable, and yet they evoke wide open, uncharted spaces in the way they play their influences off one another to create dynamism in both music and vocal.

Elsewhere in late night…

Conan O’Brien: Wilco “Whole Love” and “Dawned On Me.”
The Late Show With David Letterman: Snow Patrol “New York” (R)
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno: Chris Cornell “The Keeper”
