Amoeba Review

10/10/2018

Now signed to Elektra, you could be fooled into thinking Young the Giant would totally sell out and go full pop on their latest album. And it’s true that Mirror Master is perhaps the L.A. band’s slickest effort to date. But, somehow, Young the Giant’s latest album is perfectly geared toward radio without being crass or grasping at trends. “Heat of the Summer” is a BBQ-ready slow jam for those waning days when fall hasn’t quite taken hold and you’re trying to get every last bit of summer in, complete with just enough Flaming Lips-style weirdness to keep it interesting. “Superposition” matches its gleaming banjo riff to Sameer Gadhia’s smooth as milk vocals, warm synths and a smart, syncopated beat. “Simplify’s” heavy riff is a nice bit of nastiness that pairs well with the song’s sticky sweet chorus. And the melancholy, yearning “Call Me Back” should soon be soundtracking key scenes in every perceivable YA-book adaptation for years to come. Dare we say it? Young the Giant sound like they’ve matured without losing their ability to write hooks that stay in your head for days with Mirror Master.
