Young The Giant is a group of friends living in California. They got their big break by winning a contest in 2009. Known formerly as The Jakes, these barely 20 somethings got a chance to open for Kings of Leon before descending down to SXSW.
You may have already heard their song “My Body” on the radio or from opening up for Minus the Bear last year. Think Kings of Leon, Foster the People, and Cage the Elephant if you are not yet familiar with their sound. They were also one of Spin’s top 35 must hear acts at SXSW.
