Between her work with Shit Robot and the Juan McLean, 2013 was the year Nancy Whang began her ascension to becoming one of the great current dancefloor divas. And 2014 — the year both those projects drop long-awaited new albums — seems to be her chance to really claim that title. Whang’s great strength, as this video for “Do The Dance” proves both visually and musically, is her complete sense of cool as she effortlessly sing-speaks her way through the track.
Shit Robot is New York-based DJ Marcus Lambkin, who used to work with James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. This track reminds me somewhat of 1981’s No GDM by Gina X.
