Formed in October 2009 and with lofty aspirations, the Giants have been busy pounding dance floors with their raucous, feel-good, highly-addictive shows. With another huge summer of festivals already in the bag for 2014 including Glastonbury, Bestival, Boomtown and a tour of Ireland, it seems that many more people will be enjoying their unique sound; a mongrel blend of indie, reggae, hip hop and blues.
With ideas too big to be pigeon-holed, the Giants fuse many a musical style and are quite frankly genre-defying. Expect pumping drum and bass licks, scorching guitar, soulful yet commanding vocals and a jumpin' brass section; the band fuse inspired songwriting with a heavy dancefloor sensibility.
This spring has seen Land of the Giants scouring their homeland on their debut ‘Pleased to Meet You’ tour, bringing their sounds to a number of major cities as far as Glasgow. This 17 date marathon boasted 4 sold out shows, impressing audiences, winning hearts and cranking up the hype already surrounding this upbeat and highly addictive ensemble at every stop along the way.
Last year the six piece scooped Best Band of 2013 in the Southwest Music Awards, a title previous held by the likes of Joss Stone and Muse. Their original material fuses a plethora of styles with sincerity and raw captivating energy. Coupled with an infectious stage presence, it's this energy that has given the Giants their reputation as one of the best emerging live bands in the country.
