LISTEN — St. Vincent’s “New York”

July 5th, 2017

“Now, as days of Internet rumors have suggested, St. Vincent has a new single to add to the slow trickle of buildup. But “New York” takes a sharp left turn from St. Vincent, starting with the disappearance of the guitars around which so much of her sound has revolved; in their place is a lovely piano part, some dramatic strings and even a grand, layered chorus of voices. In spots, it conjures images of Tori Amos’ alternately tender and twisted intimacy.”
