Givers, hailing from Louisiana, is a powerhouse of an indie pop band that melds high-drama urgency with indie quirk and a variety of influences from its musically rich/diverse place of origin.
It’s been a while since fans of the band were treated to new music, with its last release being 2015’s sophomore LP New Kingdom
. While that album was solid, it didn’t quite reach the heights set by the group’s first two efforts. August will see a new EP from the band, however, and Givers sounds, based on the EP’s lead single, like it’s ready to shrug off a minor sophomore slump. Fans can expect to hear all of the band’s new material at this week’s show, plus a smattering of favorites for those who have loved the band since its start back in 2008.
$12, Fri July 27, 8pm, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks, (210) 257-8125, 502bar.com.
