St. Vincent is the Stage Name of multi-instrumentalist Annie Clark. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Annie was part of The Polyphonic Spree [a choral symphonic rock band] and part of the Sufjan Stevens' touring band before going solo with the name St. Vincent, which she claims to be either a reference to Saint Vincent's Catholic Medical Center, where the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas died in 1953, or her grandmother's middle name.
As of 2012, she has released three albums:
- Marry Me (2007)
- Actor (2009)
- Strange Mercy (2011)
St. Vincent also opened shows to diverse bands like Television, Arcade Fire, Death Cab for Cutie, Grizzly Bear and Andrew Bird. She and Bon Iver also composed the song Roslyn, part of the New Moon soundtrack- as one of the examples of good musicians associated with the Twilight movies.
Annie Clark's music contains heavy guitar riffs (her signature instrument) together with somehow melodic singing and melodies, and angry lyrics.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Surgeon
Best finest surgeon
Come cut me open
- Also, The Apocalypse Song:
All your praying moments amount to just one breath
Please keep your victory
But give me little death
- Intercourse with You: Surgeon, again.
- Last-Note Nightmare: Black Rainbow is a rather calm and melodic song (even though it contains some really depressing lyrics) that ends with some really heavy guitar distortion.
- Lyrical Dissonance: Oh so much. Now, Now, Black Rainbow, Laughing With a Mouth of Blood, Cheerleader, The Bed... The list could go on and on.
- Moustache De Plume
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
- The Something Song: The Apocalypse Song.
- Shout-Out: The lines "best finest surgeon, come cut me open", from the song Surgeon, were originally written by Marilyn Monroe on her diary. The title of her first album, Mary Me, also came after an episode from Arrested Development.
- ↑ in French, "little death" (la petite mort) is a metaphor for an orgasm
