THROWBACK: Anne Clark – Our Darkness
I love songs driven by relentless synth and drum lines and one could argue that Anne Clark, together with her co-writer David Harrow invented them in 1984 for the song Our Darkness. Anne (not to be confused with Annie Clark, who records as St. Vincent) introduced a unique style of reciting poems over electronic music. I find the video a classic too: it shows an iconic, ultra-cool 80s-style synth pop duo performance. As a bonus, you can briefly see Ingolf Lück, moderator of the German TV show Formel Eins in the end – I’m sure I’ve seen this live, when it aired the first time.
Interestingly, Anne Clark still performs and and released her last EP just last year.
