Watch: St. Vincent’s blitzing performance on Saturday Night Live

on May 18, 2014, 12:58am

While her music career has long soared on an upward trajectory, this year has been especially good to Annie Clark, a.k.a. St. Vincent.

In the last few months alone, she’s performed with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, launched her very own signature coffee with Intelligentsia, lined up a massive tour with The Black Keys, and of course, released her excellent self-titled album. Her hot streak continued last night, when she made her Saturday Night Live debut.

She delivered scorching performances of “Digital Witness” and “Birth in Reverse”. Sadly, SNL failed to take advance of her insanely great comedic chops, but there were enough music-related sketches to fall back on (see: Jay Z-Solange, EDM bass drop).

Replay both performances below.

“Digital Witness”:

“Birth in Reverse”:

Tonight’s episode of SNL also featured sketches spoofing Jay Z and Solange’s elevator incident and the dangers of a bass drop.
