Love This Giant

David Byrne & St. Vincent: Who

Love This Giant

      1. Who

There is safety in numbers, indeed, as much as there is safety in solidarity. There is certainly safety in St. Vincent‘s quirky singer-songwriter, Annie Clark keeping it quirky with the king of weird, Talking Heads’ front man, David Byrne. If you are going to get weird, do it with a man who made weird cool.


Love This Giant (to-be-released September 11th) is the fruit of a collaboration two years in the making, and “Who” is the first to jump of the 12 track album–complete with 2 track from each artist, respectively.  The single plays with a jazz-inspired saxophone, marching band drums, a Charlie Brown-esque piano, and of course a electric guitar solo by Clark’s talented hands. It is only fair to mention the obvious Byrne influence of the album. Nevertheless, it is a duo representation of modern avant-garde and its roots in New Wave.


The pair will debut performances this coming fall, and give bereaved Talking Heads fans something to talk about again. Get tickets early, and a free download of “Who,” here.
