St Vincent - 'Krokodil'
Joyfully unabashed and brittle
As jagged and unkempt as anything she’s ever done, Annie Clarke’s guitar snaps like the “sweet crocodile” of the lyric as a world of acid-tinged synths bubble below her. In fact ‘Krokodil’ is as joyfully unabashed and brittle as ‘Strange Mercy’ was warm and fuzzy. It makes you wonder what direction she’ll go in next.
