The first time I heard ‘New York’, I was stopped in my tracks. Annie Clark, aka, St Vincent, possesses a remorseful fragility on this track. A lost love expressed through sparse musicality and carefully chosen words. I can feel the pain in her heart. Beautifully human, tragically painful.
In years to come, this will be one of tracks I will automatically remember from 2017.
Update // The track is taken from St Vincent’s new album ‘Masseducation’ which will be released on October 13 2017.
I’ve started putting Spotify playlists together, including a Tune of the Week playlist, which includes all the tracks I’ve chose as Tune of the Week here on nessymon.com. You can find the playlist here. Make sure you follow, it will be updated weekly.
