Musician St Vincent (Annie Clark) made a great comment in Mojo magazine (August 2015) about playing her guitar:
'I feel kind of irreverent about the function of guitar in song. I've never been that interested in just chords that strum. I'd rather it be a beast or a monster or a ballerina, and have things feel kinda bubbling and lava lamp-style rather than static. It's nice to just look at things as noisemakers.'
