“Insert question about being a woman in music”
Annie Clarke (aka singer song writer extraordinaire St.Vincent) answers your FAQs in a series of tongue-in-cheek Instagram clips that should be called “every interview ever”.
Pre-empting the announcement that her newest album MASSEDUCATION will be released on October 13th, the Grammy-award winner released an interview kit scripted by friend and comedian, Sleater Kinny‘s Carrie Brownstein. The announcement was made even sweeter by the fact that the multi-instrumentalist released new track Los Angeles along with it.
The on-the-nose answers, BDSM-clad boom operators and dead-pan humour make for a brilliant parody of all the interviews we’re so used to watching and artists like St. Vincent are sick of doing.
Created as a response to getting asked the same questions over and over again, the interview tackles hard-hitting questions like “What album would you take on a desert island”, she answers “a flare gun, a first aid kit, a cellphone and a boat.”
I’m sure we’ve all wondered “What’s it like playing a show in heels?”. The answer? “You do have to rehearse! But it does something to your posture, which I really like. It also does something crippling, which I also like.”
Having declared her latest single New York as one of her best yet, it looks like St.Vincent might just be the art-rock gift that keeps on giving. Check out the rest of the clips on St. Vincent’s Instagram. Like seriously. Then go dance it out to New York and fall even more in love with this badass queer icon.
