Annie Clark, a.k.a. St. Vincent, will be releasing her sophomore album Actor, May 5 through 4AD records.

The opening track “The Strangers” comes dressed in a ghostly and enchanting disguise. Within St. Vincent’s darling melodies, hypnotizing lyrics and fairytale-like orchestrations, excited frustration penetrates down throughout the pound of metal drums and sharpened electric guitars only to bring her sound back up again, by gracefully exiting the room as if nothing ever happened at all.

    Got to love 4AD. Always involved with interesting artists and St. Vincent is no exception. Right, I’m off to put on my copy of “The Serpents Egg” by Dead Can Dance – just about my favourite 4AD record.
