Tune-Yards-NikkiNack-608x608
At the start of this month, we found out that Merrill Garbus’s candy-pop project tUnE-yArDs would be releasing a new album, Nikki Nack, this spring. That album’s first single, Water Fountain, is here now, and it sounds like typical tUnE-yArDs: clanking mechanical percussion, funky basslines and ecstatically silly vocals. It’s a good thing Nikki Nack drops on May 6, because it’s sounding like we’re going to need it to soundtrack a lot of those half-sunburnt summer BBQs. Listen to Water Fountain and check out tUnE-yArDs tour dates below.
