Under The Influence of Giants is one of the hottest new bands to come out this year. Earlier this year, the Los Angeles indie outfit got scooped up by Island/Def Jam following their success on MySpace. The band serves up a totally fun and glossy sound that combines elements of rock, pop and funk. It is "Hot Fuss" meeting Olivia New John meeting "Purple Rain." I recently chatted with singer Aaron Bruno (more about that later) and what I really like about this new band is that their music isn't fake or pretentious. These guys love good pop and are not afraid to admit it. (Click here to stream their current single "Mama's Room" or download Earworm's mix.)
I love to show the Giants guys a little blog love and give away some very cool prizes from high-end fashion retailer Drifter to celebrate the release of their album. Submit your contact information and have a chance to win a $130 Drifter sweatshirt + 1 Under the Influence of Giants CD (male winner), a $60 Drifter blouse + 1 Under the Influence of Giants CD (female winner) or an Under the Influence of Giants CD (runner up). I will randomly pick one lucky winner from all the entries I receive on November 4, 2006.
Register for the contest after the jump.
