St. Vincent – Down

Since March, St. Vincent (nรฉe Annie Clark) releases a single every month. Each of them was meant to be a teaser for her new album Daddyโ€™s Home, which came out last week. Just like Masseducation, the one before, it was produced by fun.โ€™s Jack Antonoff. Clark explained that the new album was inspired by her fatherโ€™s release from prison for white-collar crime, as well as his vinyl collection from the โ€™70s.

By the sound of her latest single, Down, her dad liked his music slick and funky. The song opens with a minimalistic synth riff in the vein of Stevie Wonder. Later on, we also hear touches of soul, electronic music, r&b and indie. Vocally, Kate Bush and Joss Stone appear to have been sources of inspiration. All in all, itโ€™s a diverse track that doesnโ€™t bore for one second.
