Clark depicts her life on the streets of New York – but rather than documenting nights out, she sings of the mornings after, the reminiscences of hedonistic evenings meeting the cold light of day. Compared to her bombastic previous offerings, Clark leans more into her tender side whilst revealing a slow-romp lounge persona stylised to look like someone out of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene. Reinvention is key to St. Vincent, an artist who’s never guilty of producing the same record twice, but rather subverting conventions for a sound that is both singular and daring.
Daddy’s Home by St. Vincent is out May 14, including on JB-exclusive bronze vinyl, via Loma Vista.
