On her sophomore release, Actor, Annie Clark ( a.k.a. St. Vincent) continues to woo listeners with her rich voice and lush orchestration. But don’t let the ethereal facade fool you. Clark’s lyrics reveal stories of dishonesty, anxiety, hurt and paranoia so beautifully, you may not immediately sense the dark undercurrents of her words. On “Actor Out of Work,” Clark sings of a toxic relationship headed for failure and the desire to push away from it. Check out the above video to see the singer-songwriter’s clever, yet eerie visual interpretation.
