St. Vincent's "Cheerleader"

A new video from the incomparable St. Vincent:

This is the closest to anthemic that Annie Clark ever gets and that makes it too relatively straightforward for her. What is here is good if there were something else, less direct also going on. The song feels half done, more like a traditional pop song than other of her work. Her latest album, which includes this song, is Strange Mercy. For more St. Vincent videos and more opinions from me about them, see the posts “Actor”“Marrow”“Cruel”, “Dig a Pony”, “Now Now”, and “The Alluring Annie Clark”,
