Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - "Phenom"

One of the few bright spots in the next month or probably more is new music, and I don't think anything is more highly anticipated than the new album from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down. Their latest single, "Phenom," is nothing short of exceptional. It's everything we want from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down. "Phenom" lives in a bizarre world that's equal parts folk and dance music. I don't mean folk that people dance to, I mean actual dance music. This is an odd, kinda quirky song that feels like Billie Eilish for grown ups. Plus, the video is nothing short of brilliant. Filmed during quarantine using a Zoom conference call, this would be a huge MTV Buzz Bin mega-hit if those were still a thing. Perhaps in another universe, somewhere.

You can watch the video for "Phenom" below. Temple, the upcoming album from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, will be out May 15 on Ribbon Music. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, check out their website.
