In her latest video, directed by Chino Moya for the new song “Digital Wtiness,” musician St. Vincent occupies a small slightly claustrophobic series of monochromatic rooms donning a matching robe that resembles a hospital gown, while anonymous men and women march along to her music and perform various tasks in and outside of architectural spaces that evoke Brutalism, medical examination rooms and even an IKEA store parking lot. It is this musical sensibility, one that seems to effortlessly blend elements of quirky pop and art rock, complex arrangements and lyrics, that St. Vincent will bring to Stage AE.
The American musician, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Annie Clark, known by her stage name St. Vincent, is on tour to support her new, self-titled fourth studio album. Released in February 2014 via Loma Vista and Republic Records, the 11-song album was produced by John Congleton at Elmwood Studios in Dallas, TX, and features collaborations from drummer Homer Steinweiss (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings) and drummer McKenzie Smith (Midlake).
Born in Tulsa, OK in 1982, Clark is known for her work as a member of The Polyphonic Spree and as part of Sufjan Stevens’ touring band, as well as for her collaborations with Talking Heads co-founder David Byrne. Now based in NYC, she formed St. Vincent in 2006. Clark has also contributed to recordings by Andrew Bird and Amanda Palmer, and her vocals will be featured on Swans’ upcoming album To Be Kind.
