7digital What we said: While tUnE-yArDs and Björk match sonic experimentation with ostentatious loopiness, Annie Clark has always been a master of subversion, dazzling listeners with idiosyncratic baroque pop while maintaining the most demure of demeanors. On her third studio effort, the virtuoso multi-instrumentalist has upped the ante even further, prising complex, miniature symphonies from her truly brilliant imagination. From the Disney strings and distorted guitar of ‘Cruel’ to jaw-dropping lead single ‘Surgeon’ – which morphs from a hypnagogic soundscape into the filthiest funk track Barry White never wrote – Strange Mercy is constantly surprising and utterly compelling.
