Need some inspiration to feel like a badass? Take a listen to “It’s About Time” by Young the Giant. It’s their lead single from their second album “Mind over Matter” coming out January 21st. Though this single was released back in October 2013, it’s never too late to become a fan of Young the Giant.
“It’s About Time” starts off aggressive that you might, not be able to help yourself, head bang to it. It’s definitely a song to listen to when you need a pick-me-up and remind yourself that you run the world, not Beyonce (though I wouldn’t mind living in Beyonce’s world). However, if you’re not already impressed and surprised at how great this song is, there’s that little dip after the first minute into the song. It gives you chills all over your body that just sucks you more into the song. It’s almost like a whisper and you can’t wait to hear more. This song is literally magic coming out of your speakers.
In my opinion, “It’s About Time” has a unique sound to it, and it’s not something I’ve heard before. That’s the best thing about this band; they’re that new fresh of breath air. Though in an interview with Rolling Stone, Francois Comtois (drums) did say that “It’s About Time” is the most aggressive song on the album, I don’t think their second album will let us down and I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.
If you have the chance, definitely check them out live. They will be going on tour in 2014, so check them out if they’re playing near you!
