The whole kindergarten-facepaint thing is a charming part of Garbus' aesthetic.

Indeed, over the last two years, Garbus has slowly allowed herself to move in a direction that will allow more people to appreciate her art — which hasn't been easy. "Part of why it's called w h o k i l l is that there's a sense of killing, of killing parts of myself, or killing myths that I had about myself or even hopes that I had about myself," she says. "There was a part of me that just wanted to live off the grid, and not participate in a lot of stuff that real life is." But eventually she decided her call to music was too strong to ignore. Although she lived in Africa briefly, she hopes to return there to work with the artists who inspire her. But the singer's progressive goals are already reflected in the radical work of tUnE-yArDs — right down to the project's chaotic name. "I want to use tUne-yArDs as a way to feel free of those chains, to bring the hope to other people that you can do anything," Garbus says. "Because I believe that."
