St Vincent is known to her family, friends and the US tax office as Annie Clark. She has previously worked with Sufjan Stevens and The Polyphonic Spree, and is about to release her second album, Actor.
Her first, Marry Me, was a bit hit and miss, but Actor is spot on, all chugging guitars, restless time signatures and that sweet croon. This is a video she has made for the song ‘Actor Out of Work’ and it features some out of work actors auditioning. Although, they’re clearly not out of work because they’re in a St Vincent video. It’s metafiction people, but not as we know it.
Cry damn it, cry!
