Annie Clark is another insanely creative female indie pop artist that has really changed the game over the last few years like tUnE-yArDs‘ Merrill Garbus. She goes by the stage name St. Vincent, and her virtuosic guitar playing is matched by her commanding vocals and brilliant knack for catchy songwriting, poetic lyrics and quirky melodies. The 29 year old Texas native, and Berklee dropout, is a former member of Alt. Rock stalwarts, The Polyphonic Spree. That’s quite the pedigree. Watch the lead single, “Surgeon”, off her third album Strange Mercy, which was released this past September on 4AD Records and see if she lives up to the hype. I think so.

Also, for those of you lucky enough to live in the Southwest or the Bay Area, you can catch Annie and Merrill together as they co-headline 4 shows, aside from both being at each weekend of this year’s Coachella festival. Tour dates can be seen here.
