Ever since we caught them opening for Minus the Bear way back in May, I haven’t been able to get enough of LA locals Young the Giant. Those danceable riffs and catchy hooks, combined with frontman Sameer Gadhia‘s smooth as a shot of good whiskey vocals (and with just as much kick) results in perfect rock package. I’m way past denying my addiction to the band’s debut album, which was just released physically on January 25th, and yesterday, the group released the official video for the single “My Body” off the album.

I’ve already contributed a substantial number of plays to the video…mostly to hear the song, but partially to consider how much the featured actor looks like a more robust version of Kristian Matsson (aka The Tallest Man On Earth). Give the video a looksie below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
