Indie Spotlight: GIVERS

Posted in News on June 27, 2011

In understanding GIVERS, it’s helpful to think of a constellation, a configuration of points of brightness that when placed in succession, led to the Lafayette, Louisiana-based quintet’s brilliant debut. The metaphor proves particularly useful given the name of their album, In Light (Glassnote Entertainment Group), a collection filled with joy and brightness, buoyed by constantly evolving rhythms, warmed by spangling guitars, and illuminated by the melodic altruism that is the band’s mission statement. Ambitious and warm, GIVERS’ music is converting listeners into believers. In Light was released June 7.
