Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, released her fifth (self-titled) album last week to much critical acclaim - not least by ourselves that we described in the following terms:

"...despite its placement more as high art, isn't afraid to embrace pop music for everything it's worth, managing to be accessible while also challenging, drawing the listener in with familiarity to then unleash upon them this cryptic, paradoxical world that just begs to be explored over and over again."

We sent photographer Richard Gray to cover the show at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire; the delightfully esoteric popster also announced this week that she will return to the UK this May for a handful of extra shows for those that missed out.
