Music of the Week: St. Vincent

Anne Erin Clark, known by her stage name of St. Vincent, is an American born singer-songwriter. St. Vincent’s work has received consistent praise for its distinct musical style, which brings together influences from soft rock, experimental rock, electropop, and jazz.

Her self-titled album St.Vincent, released in February 2014, was named album of the year by The Guardian, Entertainment Weekly, NME, and Slant Magazine, as well as second best album of the year by Time magazine. The album won her a Grammy for Best Alternative Album, her first Grammy award.

Clark has since been compared to the likes of Kate Bush and David Bowie. The AV Club noted: “There’s a point where too much happiness turns into madness, and St. Vincent’s multi-instrumentalist Annie Clark knows this place well”. Pitchfork said “at every turn Marry Me takes the more challenging route of twisting already twisted structures and unusual instrumentation to make them sound perfectly natural and, most importantly, easy to listen to as she overdubs her thrillingly sui generis vision into vibrant life.”

Her albums are available on iTunes, Spotify and the Google Store.
