young the giant.JPGThe theme of running, or moving fast, permeates the album Mind Over Matter by Young the Giant, with references to running fast out of time, days turning faster than a minute, and lights fading fast. And in some ways it has been a fast trip for the band; the last three years have seen them hitting the Top 10 of the Billboard Charts, with songs featured on American Idol and Glee, and profiles on CNN.


Sameer Gadhia and Eric Cannata from Young The Giant joined us for a chat about those running references, ahead of their Bluesfest gig.
