St. Vincent Jools Holland

St. Vincent has already performed “Digital Witness” on The Colbert Report and SNL, and Annie Clark’s band brought a similar take on the song — complete with robotic dancing, spazzy guitar solos, and many an affected “Yah!” — to UK talk show Later With Jools Holland. Even if we’ve seen it before, it remains one of the more arresting performances in music this year. Watch below.

St. Vincent is out now on Loma Vista.

  1. Since this is so similar to her SNL performance so I don’t have much to comment on, I’ll just say that the keyboardist looks just like one of Joker’s henchmen from the 1989 Batman movie.

  2. This was on last week’s Jools, why report it a week later? Great performance mind.

  3. It’s a bit tragic that her tv performances don’t really translate the brilliance of her live; I saw her last week and it was absolutely brilliant. Possibly the best performance I’ve seen.

    • Saw her back in March and had a similar takeaway. The music side and the performance-art side were in such a good balance. Neither distracted from the other. Great show.
