Thao and The Get Down Stay Down: Everyone Gets to Play Icarus (at least once)
Infatuation happens. More often than not, its onset inevitably results in a less than desirable outcome. We see. We want. We grasp. We fall. Yep, you, me, everyone, we all get to play Icarus.
I have complete trust that Thao Nguyen, of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, played that role with all the vigor and hope that our favorite short-lived-flying Greek did. I’m happy she did. I neither know her personally nor do I randomly wish unhappiness to befall anyone. I’m happy because she turned that crap experience (or experiences) into such pleasing tunes.
The songs are dance-worthy, clever and bittersweet.
