St. Vincent – Cheerleader

08.02.12

Annie Clark’s band St. Vincent have released a strange and beautiful video, directed by Hiro Murai, for their new track Cheerleader off last year’s Strange Mercy album. A fifty-foot high Annie lies on the floor of an art gallery, before getting up and .. but we won’t spoil it.

Annie Clark played with The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Steven’s band before starting her St Vincent project in 2007. Her critically acclaimed dark pop is melodic, intricate and beguiling.
