Hidden Gem: Karen O “I Shall Rise”

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

O Yeah!!!

“They’ll know my name
After the storms are passing through
They’ll know my name
When they’ve forgotten all about you
They’ll know my name
After the storms are passing through
They’ll know my name
When they’ve forgotten all about you”

They’ll know my name can only come from wait, they don’t love you like I love you…the lovely Karen O. (And it’s origin is as strange as Karen…Microsoft approached her to write the theme song for Square Enix’s Rise of the Tomb Raider which resulted in this track. Bizarre but it works!)

Fun Facts

  • The O in Karen O stands for Karen Orzolek
  • Their first ever gig for Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Opening for The White Stripes.
  • More excellent solo work: listen to Karen O on N.A.S.A.’s Strange Enough with…Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Fatlip. (N.A.S.A.’s The Spirit of Apollo is sublime. Get on that!)
