Magic Giant w/ Young Rising Sons
Named by Rolling Stone as one of the 10 “Arists You Need to Know,” Los Angeles based MAGIC GIANT is igniting packed crowds at every stop of its nationwide tour. The trio, comprised of Austin Bisnow (lead vocals), Zambricki Li (viola, banjo, harmonica), and Zang (acoustic guitar, cello) released its debut album, In the Wind, this past May. The band’s initial single “Set on Fire” broke the Top 25 on Billboard’s US Alternative chart and their current single “Window” has just debuted on the Hot AC Top 50.
With an appearance on the Today Show as their “Artist of the Month,” the band has toured with artists such as The Revivalists, Atlas Genius, and Mike Posner, and played festivals ranging from Firefly in Delaware to Electric Forest in Michigan. DuJour dubbed Magic Giant “the most festive band in the festival circuit... quickly becoming a must-see with their buzzy energy and upbeat sound.”
In The Wind (Washington Square/Razor & Tie) threads together a musical cartography of alternative, pop, and folk, including orchestral drums, banjo, harmonica, synths, strings, and horns. The album was recorded in their solar-powered mobile recording studio while they traveled throughout the US. Billboard claimed, “With a joyful live show the band is inspiring mass dance-alongs” and NPR said the band “...captures the energy and spirit of the past few waves of upbeat, passionate indie folk.”
Young Rising Sons
Start Time: 9:00
Fueled by a fierce chemistry and brother-like camaraderie, Red Bank, New Jersey-based foursome Young Rising Sons deliver anthemic alt-rock that's uplifting and infectious but unshakably honest. As heard on their debut single "High," lead singer/guitarist Andy Tongren, lead guitarist Dylan Scott, bassist Julian Dimagiba, and drummer Steve Patrick give serious depth to their stylish, summery sound through fearless recognition of life's less-than-sunny moments -- a dynamic that inspired SiriusXM Alt Nation and tastemakers across the globe to greet "High" with lavish praise and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe to name the song his "Next Hype" track upon its release last spring. With Tongren's voice showing a dizzying range and undeniable sweetness, Young Rising Sons' upcoming self-titled debut EP channels that spirit into songs marked by both supremely melodic hooks and a rare soulful intensity.
