Nothankyou | Know Yourself

June 22, 2013 at 12:57 pm Leave a comment

Nothankyou is the alluring combination of the sultry-voiced Brooklynite Olga Bell and London’s multi-instrumentalist master Tom Vek. The pair talked online and after a random meeting their collaboration led to this wonderful new rattling electro-pop track, “Know Yourself”, available on limited edition 7-inch vinyl and available for download on August 5th on the Moshi Moshi Records. Lyrically, the song moves from random city imagery, “The cold wind(?) screaming / Could you warm me in the evening? / The blind man feeling / In the alley / For his exit / The rich man dancin’ / On a table …” to the contrary but unified opposites of a relationship: “They toy with the conflict / I defy you / I adore you.” It’s one of the better song released this year. The second track included on this two-single release is another sweet cut, called “Oyster”. — David D. Robbins Jr.
