Last week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Young the Giant offered up a super-charged performance of their recent single "Simplify", showcasing lead singer Sameer Gadhia's powerful vocals and energizing stage presence front and center. Check out the performance below:



"Everything in modern life is complicated," explains Gadhia of the single. "Each decision divides into possible alternatives, reflections multiplying within themselves endlessly, like a room of a thousand mirrors. We construct images of how life should be lived: how to act, dress, tweet, and vote, and often times it is easy to lose your true self to the images we create for all to see. But love is simple, and to love someone is to love all of humanity. It is the closest thing to truth, and even though love can be compromising, painful, and exhausting, we can only see our truest selves in the eyes of another. This is the essence of "Simplify"."
