Happenstance brought David Byrne (ex Talking Heads) and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) together, but their new collaboration Love This Giant feels more like fate. The NYC based duo has spent the past three years in a creative dialogue that has resulted in a work that is brash and, quite literally, brassy.
Sometimes Byrne and Clark trade verses; at others they sing in unison. Like friends who can finish each other's sentences, when one takes the spotlight alone it's often with words that the other provided.
Backed by a brass band in lieu of a traditional rock line-up, the pair brings their boundary-erasing mix of melody, colour and sound to the State Theatre.
