David Byrne & St. Vincent
Watch a musical beast come to life when the duo bring their brass-heavy collabs to the State Theatre.
October 01, 2012
An odd couple to some, a truly remarkable couple to others. Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and multi-instrumentalist St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) will be unleashing their brass-heavy collaborations at one of the classiest joints around town — the State Theatre — as part of Sydney Festival 2013.
The New York-based duo will be accompanied by a brass band on the evening to ensure every quirky interjection from their debut release, Love This Giant, is executed live. Together, they have created an album oozing with eccentric musical ideas, swamped in the obscurities of jazz, pop and funk.
The two artists are like kindred spirits, seamlessly creating a record that stays true to each artist's musical identity yet morphs into an entirely new musical beast of its own. When brought to life, this giant will no doubt take on greater sonic measures for an enthralling live experience.
