Cruel | St. Vincent


Micaela Harris

It’s Monday (and the first full week of classes) so “Cruel” may seem like an appropriately titled song for your Impact Jam of the Day. But St.Vincent’s 2011 track from Strange Mercy is truly anything but cruel.

Annie Clark’s breathy but strong vocals will lead you from an echoed orchestra intro into an electro-rock track with broken drum snaps, a hella catchy guitar line, and edging synthesizers.

“Cruel” is the perfect song to keep you vibing out and pushing through the struggles of your Monday.
