A.V. Club

Clark's debut, Marry Me, seduces with one hand and stabs with the other.

The Line of Best Fit

It soothes without being snoozy and offers a Pandora’s Box of busy musical sprites swirling over foundations of eclectic beats, silky orchestration, and soft creamy vocals that deliver words that can be sentimental or sarcastic.


Annie Clark steps into the spotlight for her St. Vincent debut, with results so inventive and impressive you wonder what took her so long.


It's an orchestral record for those who prefer the simplistic, a darker one for those who prefer theirs twee, love songs for the scorned and sad songs for the content, an engaging and alluring combination that makes Marry Me nearly irresistible, and one of the better indie pop albums that's come around for a long time.

Slant Magazine

Marry Me isn’t quite a religious experience, but it’s unequivocally divine.

The Skinny

Clark wisely decides to strike out on her own with Marry Me, a bold curveball of an album.

This debut is one of my fav. debuts, and honestly she keeps impressing me with every album i listen to, she never disappointing never.
I'm in love with her <3333
#3 Your Lips Are Red, #4 Marry Me, #7 The Apocalypse Song
Some music school pretensions which she works out of her system over the course of the next two records. For all her feral iterations of the 2010s, the final two tracks here make a strong case for Annie Clark the Lounge Singer.

Favorite Tracks: Now Now, Your Lips Are Red, Marry Me, All My Stars Aligned, Human Racing
Just her voice. Her production. She could talk about getting shat on in a threesome and it would be amazing.
