Sameer Gadhia Spotlights Featured Artists
Every month, Sameer Gadhia of Young the Giant selects an artist to feature on Alt Nation as his “Point of Origin” track, and shares daily information and insight into that artist. “Point of Origin” will provide a spotlight to challenge the homogenous narrative of alternative and indie rock music by amplifying voices of color in the past, present, and future of the genre.
