Anne Erin Clark, also known as American artist St. Vincent, uses her amazing voice, multi- instrumentalist abilities, and uniqueness to create one of the most divine displays of art. Her genre of music can best be described as electronic rock. St. Vincent released her most recent astounding album Masseduction in October of 2017. My dad and I went to see her perform the album at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, and I instantly knew that she was going to be one of my favourite artists when she stepped out in the stage wearing a pair of thigh-high, hot pink and leather boots, matched with an equally extraordinary jumpsuit. I was immediately enamored when she started singing one of my favourite songs “Happy Birthday, Johnny,”  while strumming her custom electric guitar. The performance had exceeded the expectations that the music had set, in that the bright neon colors and flashing lights made for a modern representation that all were to enjoy.

When I first listened to the album before the performance, it was like nothing that I had ever heard before; the album breaks all norms through the unprecedented sound. My favourite songs on the album include: “Pills” and “Dancing With a Ghost.” Although the majority of the songs are portrayed through a more upbeat display, many of the songs’ themes revolve around sex, drugs, and mental illness. Listening to the album is a must, because of its exemplary depiction of some of the struggles in life and its particular way of displaying them.
