Video: St. Vincent – ‘Cruel’

St. Vincent – “Cruel”

It’s sort of irritating to see this video premiere at the Huffington Post — what, NPR was busy? — but given that it’s St. Vincent, it’s essential viewing. The song itself is some abstract “Blue Monday” shit, continuing in the murky vein of Actor with the addition of a piercing chorus. I’ll let the dark, clever video speak for itself; I hope the shoot didn’t ruin Annie’s shoes, though.
