When: Sat., Feb. 18, 8 p.m. 2017
When deciding what to call themselves, Thanya Iyer and her band debated several monikers, including Flower Person, Tender Thunder, Dragonfruit and Polyester Chu Chu. All were eventually rejected in favor of the bandleader’s name. But these particular names live on as the titles of several soundscapes — or themes, as she calls them — peppered throughout her album, Do You Dream. Iyer’s impeccable songwriting has the warmth and wisdom of Feist, the jazzy backbone of Norah Jones and the audacious experimentalism of Björk. Catch Thanya Iyer on Saturday, February 18, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. Lina Tullgren and Bethlehem Steel open.
