tUnE-yArDs
Fri 27 Jun 2014 West Holts Stage
Cerebral, contrary and superbly visceral tribal pop.

Five years ago, with just a ukelele and a loop pedal, Merill Garbus created tUnE-yArDs. This year she released her third (but only first studio produced) album to great critical acclaim and supported Arcade Fire on their North America arena tour as the lead performer in a five person (mostly female) band.

Described as ‘cerebral, contrary and superbly visceral’ tUnE-yArDs is a committed performer of the best kind. With warpaint on her face, her socially conscious lyrics soar over multi-textured tracks that harmoniously pull sirens and African handclaps together. Tribal yet modern, ferocious but sensitive – it’s an intense but inspiring show that’s well worth a listen and a watch.
