Louisiana band GIVERS return today with their new single ‘Collide’, out now via Glassnote Records. Produced by Grammy Award-winners Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson) along with engineer / producer Eric Heigle (Arcade Fire, Lost Bayou Ramblers), the song sees the band channeling Afro-pop polyrhythms and art rock collage into raw, transcendent joy.
GIVERS’ Taylor Guarisco & Tiffany Lamson said of the song, “’Collide’ is what you get when you have a band from Lafayette, Louisiana who grows up loving the guitarmony world of The Allman Brothers, then relocates to New Orleans to be closer to the back beat of The Neville Brothers. Mix in a few trips to Nashville to work with producer Dave Cobb at RCA studio A plus a healthy dose of getting weird with producer Eric Heigle back in New Orleans–you’ll then begin to arrive at the full scope of ‘Collide’.”
The video was co-directed by GIVERS and Emma Kanter, and was shot in New Orleans. Taylor Guarisco said, “With this ‘Collide’ video we sought to make something that was both beautiful and totally ridiculous. And without giving away too much, I can say that no band members or wiener dogs were hurt in the making of it.”
