The thing that separates Clark from any number of earth mother Lilith Fair types, however, is her eagerness to subvert that effect. Her album covers may showcase her pretty face, but her blank expression and the tight framing leave the images feeling uncomfortably ambiguous.
The songs on St. Vincent's second album, Actor , are primarily sung from the perspective of women who feel stifled and restless in their safe, orderly lives.
General Comment I think it's "cast, I'm broken arm. Also, is it "patient, I am lung"? I'm not sure. The lyrics seem to be clearer when she sings them here: vimeo. General Comment I think it is about being in love with someone who isn't all that an extra lost in the scene, a bandage pull it off etc. General Comment It sounds to me like she broke up with somebody who she thought she knew, but really didn't and now he's like an actor out of work.
He makes her feel better and she wants to be with him but she knows she shouldn't and that she can let him go. She's still in love with him, and for that she thinks she's mad. General Comment i think this is a song about denial. Loading player…. Scrobble from Spotify? Connect to Spotify Dismiss.

She blends rock, jazz, electronic, and classical touches together so seamlessly that it doesn't seem remarkable, and as lovely as her voice and music can be, she's too strange and too smart to be merely winsome.
Marry Me was as bold as its title proposal suggested, uniting her sardonic, whip-smart viewpoint and jaunty music into songs with beacon-like clarity. Things are murkier, but no less fascinating, on Actor , Marry Me 's darker and more ambitious follow-up. Musically and lyrically, the album often feels like a duel and occasionally, a duet between Clark 's collected, literate side and her raging emotions.
This is especially striking on Actor 's arrangements and instrumentation, which are even more expressive than they were on Marry Me. Clark is largely influenced by film scores on Actor, an influence easily seen through the compositions. Her voice has the ability to drive a song forward or provide a rich and soothing addition to a track. As well as possessing a powerful and haunting voice, Clark is a proficient and effective guitar player.
However, to the listener's pleasure she does not lean on her skills on the guitar when songwriting but instead melds seemingly simple progressions into haunting pop-infused masterpieces featuring a variety of instruments.
Actor doesn't shy away from dissonance and in true St. Vincent style traverses from melancholic to playful themes effortlessly, both lyrically and musically.
The Strangers Beginning with a airy vocal and woodwind intro, The Strangers quickly transforms into a quick, seemingly lighthearted song with driven by the simple yet effective drum beat.
It melds into a structure similar to The Strangers with a driving drum beat and reverb-soaked guitar adding atmosphere. Vincent flair. Neighbors The Neighbors seems almost ballad-like, but with an added heaviness. On 87 Music Lists. Add a Comment. AggravatedYeti May 4th Comments. Pointro May 4th 14 Comments.
