HEADLINERS: your week 2 playlist

Spring is for defrosting.

YOUNG THE GIANT – “Mr. Know-It-All” – as described by chloe rickards

The lead singer of Young the Giant is a Stanford alum — it shouldn’t be too hard for Frost to rope them in, right? And, while they might not open with (or even play) “Mr. Know-It-All,” I feel like this song could have been inspired by Sameer Gadhia’s time here.
