"I tried to tell him all the reasons I had to never sing again/and he replied, ‘You better find a new way.’" That line, taken from the first song on tUnE-yArDs’ third full-length release, Nikki Nack, isn’t just a playfully visual way of opening an album—it’s a statement of intent.

Most artists would have taken a victory lap; Garbus ran the other way.

She is the moon at night, she dances she takes flight.

She is the wind in Autumn, soft like cotton.
