David Byrne and St Vincent: Who
It genuinely sent Fred’s heart racing when he heard about this collaboration. Byrne is one of Fred’s long-time muso crushes, while Annie Clark is perhaps his favourite musician of all time. Or vice versa.
Whatever, it’s a delicious combination and the album, which comes out later this year, promises to be an absolute treat. Here’s a little taster of what’s to come. Fans of both will be pleased to hear that the sound is as experimental as it is catchy, moving as it does through smokey sax, choppy time changes and typically Clark-esque squeals, screeches and clatterings of serrated guitar. Bliss.
