Album: St. Vincent
Year released: 2014
When you consider the bouncy brass elements of "Digital Witness" that immediately capture your attention, it almost seems odd that the song is a criticism of our social media-obsessed generation. St. Vincent has spoken about the performance of online identity on more than one occasion, suggesting that what we put out there for the world is meticulously crafted. Clark is notoriously private about her personal life, yet she still maintains her online presence. It's a juxtaposition that's comparable to the theatrical production on "Digital Witness" versus the warning that the lyrics provide.
