The Background: St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) is a one-woman band mixing pop balladry, showtune-ish exuberance, squalling electric guitar, and subtle hints of jazz in her particular and complex compositions. If her music sounds dramatic and forceful, in person Clark is neither. This avant-garde performer compared to David Bowie promises that her shows are a “bizarre fever dream”!
Hometown: Oklahoma, USA.
The buzz: She has opened shows for such acts as Arcade Fire and Death Cab for Cutie. She also worked with Bon Iver!
The truth: The New-Yorker named St.Vincent as “the best music of 2014 so far”
What to buy: Everything…
