Young the Giant is an American indie rock band that was formed in Irvine, California in 2004. Formerly known as the Jakes, Young the Giant, writes melodic rock-n-roll tunes bound for greatness.
The band members are Sameer Gahia (lead vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass) and Francois Comtois (drummer). The bandmates met each other in high school, following graduation the guys joined forces to form Young the Giant. Young the Giant's sound can be described as a summery sound that makes you think of walking on the beach while the sun is setting. Or sitting around a bon fire at the beach singing songs and making s'mores. The bands singles "My Body", "Cough Syrup" and "It's About Time" reached the top five of the US Alternative Songs chart. "Mind over Matter", Young the Giant's second album was released the beginning of this year. Songs such as "It's About Time" show a heavier, more mature sound for Young the Giant, than the soft, beachy sound of the debut album.

"Always Like This" 

Bombay Bicycle Club is an English indie rock band from Crouch End, London. The band members Jack Steadman (vocals,guitar,piano), Jamie MacColl (guitar) Suren de Saram (drums), and Ed Nash (bass). These guys are super talented and have experimented with different genres, including folk, electronica, world music, and indie rock which can be seen throughout their four albums. Bombay Bicycle Club's latest album was released February 3, 2014! Its a lovely listen and you should check it out!

If you are unfamiliar with Bombay Bicycle Club I would suggest that you start with their song "Always Like This." This is probably one of my favorite Bombay Bicycle Club songs mainly because its a great song and it has some sentimental value. This is the first song that got me hooked to this band. I have to say Bombay Bicycle Club is one of my favorite bands, even though I have a lot of favorites, they will always have a special place in my heart. 
So what are you waiting for, check them out!

Check out the official videos "Always Like This" and "Carry Me"(from the latest album)
