Single Review: Amerika by Young the Giant

Young the Giant melancholy style is front-and-center in their new single”Amerika.” The first time I listened to the song, I was on the fence on whether I liked it or not. I’m not a huge fan of the extremely mellow tone this song has. Sameer Gadhia strong vocals often over power the music and are the highlight of the song. But the more I listen to the song, the more it grew on me. The emotional lyrics make you feel devastatingly hopeless. The song emphasizes on how someone can lose their way in life to greedy dreams , “I was searching for something as I watched you run/I was sad when you said that you never really wanted some” The song is a great introduction for their upcoming album Home Of The Strange – available August 12th.
