ST. VINCENT | Cheerleader (Video)

February 7, 2012 at 11:52 am Leave a comment


St. Vincent’s Annie Clark has a new video out for “Cheerleader”, a song off her 2011 record “Strange Mercy”, named one of Their Bated Breath’s Top 15 Albums of the year. “Strange Mercy” is just one stage in the continuing evolution of St. Vincent. At its most visionary moments, it’s luxuriating, flaunting, extravagant, lush, strange, and passionate. Watch the video above, featuring a gigantic Ron Mueck-ized Annie Clark, existing as artwork and mannequin. For those of you that read my feature piece on St. Vincent, this video is another example of the artist’s obsession with anatomical listing, as parts of her fall to the floor and break into pieces. The song itself is also about breaking out of a prescribed mode. Read a full-length review of “Strange Mercy” here, a Top 10 list of best live moments for St. Vincent, and any other posts from TBB about the band here. St. Vincent has also provided a Google link to stream “Strange Mercy” and download a free copy of “Cheerleader” here. Video directed by Hiro Murai. –– David D. Robbins Jr.
