St. Vincent’s “Daddy’s Home” Video Pays Homage to the Dirt-Smudged Sparkle of the ’70s
The new visual from Annie Clark features three bedazzled but lackadaisical dancers, a flasher, and Demi Adejuyigbe.
Just last week, we got a look at a new project from Annie Clark with the trailer for Nowhere Inn, a rock-mockumentary about her life and music as St. Vincent with the help of Carrie Brownstein. Today, we get another video, one from the album St. Vincent released a couple months ago called Daddy’s Home that’s indebted to the dirt-smudged sparkle of the ’70s. She’s shared the video for the title track, which is charmingly bizarre.
The video features the musician preforming solo on a giant truck that parades her around in a square spanning four blocks. There’s also a trio of bedazzled, lackadaisical dancers. Then, a man in a khaki trench coat comes out and flashes St. Vincent while she’s performing. She screams, but it’s unclear if it’s because of the indecent shock or rock ‘n’ roll catharsis. Oh, I almost forgot the best part: comedian Demi Adejuyigbe makes an appearance a couple times reading comics in an office chair outside (no desk). He appears annoyed as St. Vincent makes her second lap. At the end, she waves to no one.
