In a recent New Yorker profile, it was revealed that Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein had written the script for a new “interview kit” for St Vincent, a handy guide ”to avoid the “festering self-loathing” that comes from answering the same questions from journalists over and over.”
The series of videos have now been shared on Annie Clark’s Instagram, and they’re pretty amazing to be honest.
When asked what advice she would give to young musicians, Annie says: “I would tell young musicians today to get into the film industry.”
She then goes on to talk about politics in music. “I think relevance is an act of political fluency and my goal is to stay relevant as an artist. All political art is not great art, and great art is not all political. Art will always be judged in relation to the time and place in which it was made.
“So, if an artist claims if they are apolitical, then I feel they’ve already lost the battle. An audience is more damaged, I think, and betrayed by voids rather than substance.”
