CURRENT: tUnE-yArDs – “Water Fountain”

Merril Garbus’ tUnE-yArDs project is one the more exciting musical acts to come across in the past decade. For fans of her phenomenal 2011 album w h o k i l l, the first single from her forthcoming Nikki Nack, “Water Fountain” is a celebratory yet tense explosion of brilliant ideas. The most striking aspect of “Fountain” is the song’s central melody, which hints at a more refined affair, with Garbus’ voice standing tall against the idiosyncratic production.

Nikki Nack is out 6 May through 4AD.
