AN INTERVIEW WITH ANNIE CLARK

St. Vincent’s self-titled new record, out later this month, follows hot on the heels of lengthy tours on the back of her own previous solo record, 2011’s Strange Mercy and the slower-burning brass-based collaboration with David Byrne in 2012, Love This Giant. The latter, in particular, prospered on the back of a stunning, choreographed, large ensemble live show (hinting at Byrne’s production values rather than Clark’s) which won acclaim at last summer’s Electric Picnic. Clark took “just 36 hours” off before leaping back in the game, writing her new part-inspired by the “fearless, in-the-moment” Byrne, but ultimately in the context of her own small but powerful band, made up of her own fabulous and unique guitar playing, drummers Homer Steinway (Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings) and McKenzie Smith (Midlake), keyboardist Danny Mintseris, former Prince collaborator Bobby Sparks on Minimoog (“but her can do anything!”) as well as her regular engineer and producer, John Congleton.
