Under The Radar: Givers

Givers is a five piece band from Lafayette, Louisiana with a fresh, bouncy sound containing elements consistent with their surroundings such as Afro-beat and folk-rock. Their expansive, uplifting sound is filled with flowing vocal harmonies and foot-stomping, hand-clapping beats. Female vocalist Tif Lamson adds an undeniable elegance to Givers’ small number of released songs (from their EP). However, the band has plans to release a full-length album this winter once they settle on a label. Until then, you can catch them opening up for Ra Ra Riot in Asheville at the Orange Peel on November 3rd and Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro on November 4th. Have a listen to 2 of their tracks below and take the jump for a video or two. If you like those two, definitely grab “In My Eyes” as well.
