Annie Clark, better known as St. Vincent, has combined her electric rock roots with a multitude of other influences to create an album with a remarkably distinct sound.
Clark combines her impeccable musicianship with lyrical social commentary to produce an album as catchy as it is poignant. Her new release contains a symphony of sounds that show her skill as a musician.
The album’s high pointcomes in the form of “Digital Witness,” which mocks our culture’s social media obsession. This best highlights Clark’s collection of influences, from David Bowie-style rock to modern synth and electronic sounds.
“I Prefer Your Love” serves as a halftime between the fast-paced front and back halves of the album. While the song showcases Clark’s impressive vocals, it throws off the groove that the album’s previous tracks established.
