Dirty Projectors Play ‘About to Die’ on ‘Letterman’

Subscribe to on
Brooklyn outfit Dirty Projectors hit the ‘Late Night With David Letterman’ stage last night (Nov. 14) for a performance of ‘About to Die,’ a tune from their recently released EP of the same name. Backed by a sprawling collective of musicians — two percussionists, a bassist, a keyboardist, a guitarist and a six-piece string section, with many of the female members providing vocal harmonies — frontman David Longstreth coaxed out all the song’s subtle sonic details, and the result sounded absolutely sublime.

Dirty Projectors recently issued a video for ‘About to Die’ that featured footage from their ‘Hi Custodian’ short film. Check out ‘While You’re Here,’ another song from the EP, here.
