Thao And The Get Down Stay Down – Body (Kill Rock Stars)

March 14, 2010 by  

With a drum intro similar to Coldplay’s ‘In My Place’, thankfully the latest single from San Franciscan songstress Thao (with The Get Down Stay Down) turns into something a bit different.

If you’ve been a keen admirer of the chirpy indie pop of ‘We Brave Bee Stings and All’, then ‘Body’, from new album Know Better Learn Faster won’t disappoint. It’s not so much a departure in sound more a continuation of the good work she has produced.

Admittedly not much would suggest the track would be her breakthrough, yet the clever use of hand claps in a slow burning number, driven by said drum beat and perky guitar hook, including a nice brass punch to finish, creates a pleasant trademark Thao track.
