Bio

Lyke Giants are an Indie Rock trio from Tassie made up of two brothers and their best mate.

The band has been on an upward curve since their debut album in 2013, gaining blog love from around the world and even more success recently with their release in August, “Let Up”. Back home in Australia Lyke Giants have also thrived, performing at The Falls Festival multiple times and supporting bands such as British India and Faker.

Once again working with producer Paul Mckercher (The Vines, Art Vs. Science, Sarah Blasko, Papa vs Pretty, Bertie Blackman, You am I); the trio are expanding their body of work with more indie-rock sounds and atmospheric vibes. “Spite” has a steady and dense groove that drives the song, enabling the listener to jump right in from the outset. Its layers of seemingly contrasting tones all gel to form a soft to gritty, thick, and spacious track.

I'm impressed by the shift in direction here. It's less brooding than what I know from Lyke Giants with some nice, warmer textures to the guitars. Still got that overwrought vocal but it all glides along pretty cleanly.
