There’s definitely a line to be traced from her 2007 debut LP ‘Marry Me’ to the sort of cyborg-rocker aesthetic St. Vincent shows off nowadays - for one thing, the record shows off the same sense of wry detachment that has always been a feature of Annie Clark’s music. However, this album is also a lot more whimsical than something like ‘MASSEDUCATION’, churning influences from baroque-pop, leftfield indie ala Dirty Projectors and industrial-pop into a set of uncanny valley rock nuggets.

It's nice to know that Annie Clarke (St. Vincent) would go to the humble beginnings of Marry Me to the critically lauded Strange Mercy and follow that with the commercially successful self-titled. I went through St Vincent's back catalogue backwards and expected this album to be a fairly "cute" affair with simple acoustic pop songs and playful melodies - how wrong I was. Marry Me is an extremely engaging and musically expansive debut. I shouldn't have expected anything less from such a talented artist.
