Young Marble Giants
Young Marble Giants are a post-punk band formed in Cardiff, Wales in 1978. Their music is constructed around the vocals of Alison Statton along with the minimalist instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham. Statton's cool vocals and the band's melodic, minimalistic arrangements have proved influential in the development of indie pop. Their early sound was a sharp contrast with the more aggressive punk rock that dominated the underground at the time. Young Marble Giants have only released one full-length studio album, 1980's Colossal Youth.
