Video: St. Vincent – “Cruel”

St. Vincent, aka baroque indie-pop chanteuse and composer Annie Clark, just premiered her latest video on the Huffington Post. Not only is it maybe the best video I’ve seen this year, but the song combines orchestral whimsy and galloping rock with the kind of deft and effortless skill that seems to come naturally to Ms. Clark. Also, that guitar solo is grimy. Marry me? No… really.

You can stream and download the previously released “Surgeon”, also taken from her forthcoming LP Strange Mercy, down below.
