Young the Giant at the Fillmore tonight (4/26/2012)

Posted By on Thu, Apr 26, 2012 at 8:56 AM

YOUNG THE GIANT/APACHE RELAY Frontman Sameer Gadhia tries to inject passion into his mid-range nice guy vocals, and Jacob Tilley takes a stab at atmosphere with chiming delayed guitars, but Young the Giant's sunny SoCal-flavored pop-rock is more warmed over than genuinely warm. Young the Giant shoot for the plaintive plain speaking of Soft Swells and the retro-tinged yearning of The Last Shadow Puppets, but lack the dark undercurrents and sheer hookiness of both bands. This is well-played and produced corporate indie rock, recalling Kings of Leon-lite at best, the vague gaseousness of Coldplay at worst. Openers Apache Relay, with their brand of '70s-influenced Americana rock, are far more credible. $24.50. The Fillmore Charlotte.
