The Lafayette, Lousiana group Givers were a Stereogum Band To Watch in 2010, and they released their debut album In Light in 2011. Later this year, they’ll follow it up with the sophomore LP New Kingdom. Judging by first single “Bermuda,” it’ll be just as rhythmically tricky and vocally rich as its predecessor. The members of Givers grew up playing around with jazz, and even though “Bermuda” is still very much an indie rock song, you can hear their improvisational roots at play. Listen to “Bermuda” (which they’re also writing as “Bermud∆” sometimes) below.
New Kingdom is out 11/13 on Glassnote.
