She Comes In Colors Everywhere: St. Vincent Talks About Having Synesthesia

by (@BHSmithNYC)


It’s been quite a year so far for Annie Clark, better known by her stage name of St. Vincent. First she set the indie world afire with her latest self-titled album, her fourth overall, before being asked to be one of the stand-ins for fallen alt rock icon Kurt Cobain at Nirvana’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction performance and this past weekend rocked the stage at Saturday Night Live season finale. One of music’s most fascinating artists, Annie recently sat down with VH1 News and talked about how her music is influenced from her having “a mild case of Synesthesia,” a rare sensory disorder in which the senses merge and comingle. In her case, when she hears or writes music she sees also sees corresponding colors, giving a whole new meaning to singing the blues. Find out why she sees her new album as red and what colors she sees when she hears other songs off the new album.
