When two music giants get together, namely David Byrne & St Vincent, we know that we are in for something big. Both are not strangers to this type of large scale musical work. David Byrne, of course has been part of the Talking Heads, only one of the bigger bands of our generation. He has also done numerous collaborations, most notably with Brian Eno. Annie Clark, on the other hand, while not as famous as Byrne, is part of the rising generation of exciting rocking musicians. And yes, she shreds a mean guitar!
The appropriately titled Love This Giant, by these two giants is a blended work of artistry that manages to not only allow these two distinct but similar musicians to coexist but also to thrive on each other. It just seems oh so natural that we have Annie Clark singing over the eclectic beats produced by David Byrne, it’s a wonder why it took them so long to team up!
Check out the kooky little video for lead track Who. We are all winner once David Byrne starts dancing.
