I first heard about GIVERS in a serendipitous way. Someone on my twitter feed had mentioned seeing them open for the Dirty Projectors in Georgia, and I happened to look them up. Not only were the tracks on their myspace pretty jamming, but they were playing in Houston the next night. Perfect opportunity to check them out.
Well, the show blew me away. GIVERS has an infectious energy that the crowd can’t help but pick up. A few songs in, I had abandoned the typical arms-crossed-standing-in-the-back-tapping-my-foot pose and was dancing along with everyone else in the tiny venue.
Each time I’ve seen them, everyone in GIVERS looks like they are having the time of their lives. Watching them, you can’t help but be drawn into it. Last night, GIVERS had a chance to showcase their indie pop on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Check it out, then pick up their first full-length, In Light.
