California quintet Young the Giant draw upon the members' international roots to forge a worldly blend of summery indie pop and anthemic stadium rock. Originally operating under the moniker the Jakes, the band dove headfirst into the mainstream in 2010 with the release of their debut LP, which included the RIAA gold-certified hits "My Body" and "Cough Syrup." Subsequent offerings like Mind Over Matter and Home of the Strange continued to hone their eclectic but accessible brand of modern rock and helped make them both radio and festival favorites, with high-profile appearances at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza, among others. The band’s second album, the heavier Mind Over Matter, arrived in January 2014 and saw the group make the jump to Warner subsidiary Fueled by Ramen. The album fared well enough to reach number seven on Billboard's Top 200, and Young the Giant toured heavily in support of it over the following two years. In April 2016, they debuted the lead single "Amerika," which appeared on their third effort, Home of the Strange, a substantive collection of songs that ruminated on the group's immigrant history and American identity as a whole. 2018 saw the release of the singles "Simplify" and "Superposition," which landed on their fourth album, Mirror Master.
