St. Vincent – Pills
The Grammy champ flagged her goal on lead single “New York,” which emerges as one of the year’s ideal, before advising us that she hasn’t lost any of her edge on “Los Ageless” and new buzz track “Pills.” The last investigates our reliance on synthetic help over electro-pop beats and brags extra vocals from Jenny Lewis. St. Vincent’s fifth LP, MASSEDUCTION, arrives not long from now (on October 13, to be correct) and it guarantees to be the artist/lyricist’s most pop-driven offering to date.
“I put in a year suspended in air, my psyche on the hole, my head on the stairs,” St. Vincent sings in the opening verse. “From healers to merchants and afterward back once more, from master to voodoo and voodoo to zen.” That takes us to the gnawing chorale. “Pills to wake, pills to rest, pills, pills, pills each day of the week,” she records. “Pills to walk, pills to think, pills, pills, pills for the family.” Check out the skeptic’s appealing new track beneath and pre-Order MASSEDUCTION
