TUNE-YARDS

Merrill Garbus has performed as tUnE-yArDs since 2009. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called “a confident do-it-yourselfer’s opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter,” Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring. In 2011, tUnE-yArDs released its second album, w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where Garbus and bassist Nate Brenner accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice’s 2011 Pazz and Jop poll), performed around the world, and collaborated with the likes of Yoko Ono and ?uestlove. The stunning third album, Nikki Nack, was released in 2014 via 4AD and features work with producers John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A.) and Malay (Alicia Keys, Frank Ocean, Big Boi). It’s a showcase of how Garbus’s songwriting has blossomed, and a testament to how current technologies can combine with themes from the past—Saturday mornings spent watching Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, puppet shows based on Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal, hard days made less so by the refuge provided by top-40 radio—to create something utterly original.
