I first heard this song a few weeks back thanks to Jim Carroll over at On The Record and his Phantom radio show at 10pm on Tuesdays. ‘Up Up Up’ just sounds like the soundtrack to summer 2011. It’s got an infectious little guitar line, a so-easy-it’s-bad chorus and a total wig-out outro. It also kind of sounds like Americans doing Los Campesinos! But that’s ok. Givers hail from Louisiana and ‘Up Up Up’ is the opening song of their debut album In Light, which is available if you look hard enough. Though like Tennis last year, the release date is a little sporadic for us folk in Ireland. It was mixed by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter) and Chris Coady though, so it’s got that extra seal of approval.
