St Vincent has been kicking around for years now, she’s very indie and alternative but has a massive following. I first discovered her a few years back when she did a collaboration with David Byrne from Talking Heads.
Her solo work is full of intricate melodies, and unusual sounds ensuring she stands out from the mainstream/pop crowd.
This track in particular ‘Cruel’ has a distinct melody throughout that is either a very distorted guitar or a horn with some extra reverb on it. Either way, it makes for a quirky and catchy tune!
