St. Vincent – ‘Digital Witness’

You can hear the influence of Annie Clark’s recent collaborative album with David Byrne on this new track ‘Digital Witness’ from the new self-titled St. Vincent album specifically in the use of that album’s slurpy brass but also in the song’s more coasting rhythmical time. The lyrics reflect a society that increasingly documenting its every movement willingly via social media via lines like “If I can’t show it / If you can’t see me / What’s the point of doing anything?”. I wouldn’t know what that feels like…

The album is out on February 21st in Ireland with Annie playing the Olympia the next night. The album can be pre-ordered here. Hear ‘Birth In Reverse’ too.
