This blew me away in such a good way. Annie Clark continues to blow minds at St. Vincent and this is one sensual performance if I’ve ever seen one.
It started with St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) appearing from within a shadow, dressed in black, singing about “nuns in stress positions” and “Lolita is weeping” as she played a slinky riff on her guitar. Then came a voice, joining her on the chorus of “Masseduction,” and Lipa — who looked like a mirror image of Clark’s with her bobbed black hair and monochrome look — came out, and the women traded looks and leaned into each other as they used a little of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” to transition into Lipa’s Calvin Harris collaboration, “One Kiss.” Lipa danced, Clark shredded and it became one of the night’s best and most talked-about performances.
