St. Vincent has stepped into a brave new world in her new self-titled album. More than an album, it is a vision of the future. Her video for Digital Witness took style cues from the Memphis Design Movement, with bright color palates and adjunct angles. She has changed her personal appearance, leaving behind her kempt brown hair, dying it silver and splaying it radically. Musically, she wanted to stretch the limits of what a guitar could sound like. This week NPR is letting listeners hear her declaration before its February 25th debut. We encourage you to give the whole thing a listen.
St. Vincent will be in town on April 4th at Turner Hall Ballroom. It will be the only place to blend the visual and auditory thesis that St. Vincent is making with this new album. Get your tickets here.
