David Byrne and Saint Vincent – Roundhouse | 27.08.2013

byrne2Talking Heads’ David Byrne and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) head to the Roundhouse as part of their forthcoming European tour. The duo released their acclaimed debut collaborative album, Love This Giant, last year.

Recorded over two years largely at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ, Love This Giant is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word, with Byrne and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) co-writing ten of the album’s twelve tracks, and each artist penning one song individually. The album centres around an explosive brass band and is propelled by John Congleton’s drum programming. “There was no delineating what the roles were,” explains Clark of the recording. “It’s a collaboration I’m truly proud of.” The duo also split lyrical and vocal duties on the record, which despite eschewing a traditional guitar/bass/drums line-up in favour of idiosyncratic horn arrangements, presents itself as infectious and modern hook-laden rock
