"Melodically, I wanted to go to strange places," Garbus says of the impressive new tUnE-yArDs album, Nikki Nack. Her voice has a gentle sing-songy quality that slides easily from high to low and back again. "I wanted to say I don't care if this song structure sounds weird…I just wanted to stretch what a pop song could be, and bring in elements of non-pop songs. This time around, I was really interested in dance music, and having people dance and wanting to have choruses that were at times sing-alongable, and wanting to stretch in that direction."
