BIG GIGANTIC's 'The Night Is Young' New Studio Album Out Now
BIG GIGANTIC have released their new album THE NIGHT IS YOUNG for free via their website www.biggigantic.net.
THE NIGHT IS YOUNG, which marks the fifth album by Boulder, CO-?based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken following Fire It Up (2009), Wide Awake (2009), A Place Behind The Moon (2010) and 2012's Nocturnal (which has received more than one million downloads to date), is an eclectic mix of tracks that span genres from electronic and dance to hip hop and electro soul. With a provocative sound that's as thoughtful as it is danceable, BIG GIGANTIC weaves whirling melodies into addictive beats and samples that wouldn't sound out of place on a Kanye West or LCD Soundsystem single. No genre is off-limits for BIG GIGANTIC, whose breakthrough sound channels everything from funk and dub-step to house and hip-hop.
There are eight songs on THE NIGHT IS YOUNG including "Touch The Sky," a blazing instrumental that made its debut in late 2013 to critical acclaim throughout the blogsphere, as well as its next single, the album's title track which features Cherub. Look for its video which features both BIG GIGANTIC and Cherub to make its debut the week of February 17. There is also the crushing dubstep song "Lets Go!," the dazzling sax hooked track "Just For The Thrill" and velvety number "Shooting Stars."
