If you were watching VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live earlier today, you probably noticed: Young the Giant just issued an endearing, eventually fiery new video for “Apartment,” the follow-up to the Irvine band’s breakthrough singles, “My Body” and “Cough Syrup.”
The clip is running exclusively for 24 hours across all MTV networks. Click here to watch it on MTV.com, then speculate how many Winnebagos they had to torch to get just the right shots. (Hopefully just the one.)
Also note how MTV has declared YTG an L.A. group. Funny: In the wake of Gwen Stefani, those Real Housewives and The OC, to name only a few local sensations, you’d think the culture giant’s overlords would be well acquainted with Orange County by now.
Meanwhile, as the group’s popularity continues to soar, Young the Giant has added more dates to its summer tour. No extra gigs nearby — we already knew about the quintet’s July 22 appearance at Pacific Amphitheatre — but they have added some prestigious events to their agenda, including performances at Bonnaroo in Tennessee on June 10, Toronto’s Edgefest on July 14 and NYC’s Central Park Summerstage series on July 16.
