Young the Giant is an indie alternative rock band from Irvine, California. They were known as The Jakes from 2004 to 2009. They were pretty busy early on as band members were either in different colleges or high school, but after a few personnel changes they stuck together and got some big notoriety playing at SXSW in Austin. After the name change their ascent continued, playing big shows and making TV appearances. The current members are Sameer Gadhia, Jacob Tilley, Eric Cannata, Payam Doostzadeh, and Francoi Comtois. Their 2010 album Young the Giant peaked at #42 on the US chart, but Mind over Matter, released this January, got up to #7. One of their most popular songs, “Cough Syrup” gained a lot of popularity because of a Top 40 radio station in Los Angeles gave it significant airplay. “Mind over Matter” is the most popular song on the Mind over Matter album.
