'Woman' by Karen O & Danger Mouse
In 2003, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs dropped their high acclaimed album, ‘Fever to Tell’. I watched the frenzied video for their single, ‘Date with the Night’, and was instantly hooked. The raw energy from lead singer/screamer/beer drinker Karen O was beyond infectious. As a young woman who was fueled off that type of energy, I was immediately engaged and dedicated to the art-alt-rock of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Their three piece band, Karen O, Nick Zinner, and Brian Chase created classic project after classic project while also pursuing solo projects on the side.
One of these projects is the album ‘Lux Prima’ by Karen O & Danger Mouse. I saw the promo post for this project on her instagram feed and shouted, “MY GIRL IS BACK!!” In actuality, she never left, but it’s nice to hear a new power raging from her lungs! Thank you Karen O for being a huge inspiration for me and many women across the globe!
