With ‘MASSEDUCTION’ little over a month away, the game is about to expand yet again.

Sometimes, an artist will kick up a level. A skip in the step, and suddenly they’re operating on a whole different plane. That’s what happened to St. Vincent with her 2014 self-titled album. Great before, suddenly she was marching to a bigger beat, built on the back of a record that demanded all eyes (and ears) focused directly on Annie Clark.

The thing is, most will only make such a jump once. Not here, though. In the time she’s been away, St. Vincent’s profile has continued to rise. With her consistent brilliance, she was never going to deliver music on her return that didn’t match up to the task, but with ‘Los Ageless’, all expectations are but a tiny dot in her wing mirrors.

A sleek, stalking, confident beast, it’s worlds apart from previous cut ‘New York’. Strutting forth, it’s both gloriously technicolour and seductively dark. Dripping with sparkling potential, it’s yet another subtle reinvention for pop’s most creative force.

It’s long been said that St. Vincent could be the one that has the potential to go toe to toe with the legendary figures of modern music. Gradually transforming with each record, the thread remains the same, but the identity evolves. Each time, the horizons widen. The stakes go up, but she never strikes out. With ‘MASSEDUCTION’ little over a month away, the game is about to expand yet again.
