Tons of comparisons run through my mind when I listen to St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark), and they’re in terms of aesthetic instead of sound. She’s a fearless pop experimentalist, like Björk, Kate Bush or Peter Gabriel. She’s a fiery fret player who can downplay her skills in favor of a song, like Prince. She has a beautiful singing voice and employs swelling, dreamy strings, like a Disney movie, but she’s also pretty fucking dark at times, like a Disney movie. Strange Mercy, her third full-length, showcases it all.
