CURRENT: St. Vincent – “Prince Johnny”

Annie Clark’s third appetizer from her forthcoming self-titled LP is also the best offering we’ve yet heard from this new collection, largely forgoing the freaktronics of “Birth In Reverse” and “Digital Witness.” What really makes “Johnny” transcend St. Vincent’s previous singles is the cool but provoking vocal performance by Clark, with the airy and green chorus being one of the most pleasing sounds to the ear in some time. There’s a fine line between pushing boundaries and alienating listeners, and Clark seems to have found the perfect balance on her third studio LP.

St. Vincent is out 25 February through Loma Vista.
