tUnE-yArDs - Stop That Man
I went to see Arcade Fire on Monday and it was an amazing show. I haven’t been on the floor of a massive show in a long time and to see the band just metres away from me was wonderful. Their opener band, however, was something else to behold.
Covered in face paint, sequins, bright colours, and confusing patterns, Tune-Yards hammered away at drums and provided some seriously interesting vocals to go along with it. Their bassist was the most normal looking of the bunch and even he had a greasy moustache and a ridiculous t-shirt. My favourite part was the fact that the two backup singers looked like they were loving life. They were dancing, banging drum sticks together, and harmonizing like crazy. It was aggressive, loud, and frankly, a little bewildering, but it was amazing none the less.
Tune-Yards have been around since 2006 and is made up of primarily Merrill Garbus who uses loops often to develop her sound. The bassist is the only other permanent member. Stop That Man is from the album nikki nack which was released in 2014.
I hope that you all enjoy this selection and have a wonderful Saturday!
