Indie Rock
Blending a love of 90’s alt-rock with modern indie sensibilities, Jiants is a Toronto-based foursome led by ex-pro skateboarder Jesse Landen. Landen is joined by Adam Kesek on bass, John Sirdevan on drums and the recently added Joe Delfin on lead guitar. Their self-titled debut was released in August 2016. NOW Magazine described the lead single “Paralyze” as a tune that will “transport you back to the best of 90s indie rock” while Paste Magazine called Jiants a “band to watch.” Jiants’ follow-up, Odd Trouble, was recorded in August 2017 at Candle Recording and produced by Landen and Taylor Knox. The album blends infectious riffs and melodic keyboard lines with Landen’s sun-cracked vocals to capture a nostalgic sound you’ll remember from a time that maybe never was.

Odd Trouble will be released digitally and on vinyl on June 15th, 2018.
