St. Vincent (Annie Clark) is amazing. She is smart, funny (just go watch all the promo video clips for MASSEDUCATION on her Instagram), clever, and her video for “New York” is the best. Screen caps below. I can’t wait for her new album to come out.
I saw her live a few years ago in Calgary for Sled Island–hands down one of the best live shows I have ever been to in my life.
Seeing her perform “Cheerleader” live at Sled Island has become an anthem of sorts for me when I’m just done with the the cheerfulness and from-the-sidelines attitude that the patriarchy so often demands from us.
I feel like St. Vincent, Janelle Monaé, and of course Beyoncé are probably the trifecta of women I would follow into the future.
“New York” is such a brilliant song — it loops perfectly, and next thing you know, I’ve been listening to it for hours…
