St. Vincent - The Strangers

St. Vincent, actual name Annie Clark, is an American musician.  She was once a member of The Polyphonic Spree.  Her sophomore album, Actor, was released in May of 2009.  It debuted at #90 on the Billboard 200.  St. Vincent's style of music is very unique.  At first look, the album artwork is also unique.  The intro music of this song reminds me of a classic film, maybe even a Walt Disney cartoon.  This makes sense, since Clark herself stated that the classic animations inspired her during the recording process.  It's incredibly hard to classify this song into a specific genre.  On the other hand, there's no denying that Clark has a smooth voice.  It's very classic.  At times she reminds me of Natasha Khan, also know as Bat For Lashes.  I would listen to this song if you need something that's a little... different.  "The Strangers" really isn't like any other song that's out there right now.  It's fun and slightly eerie at the same time.  Although this song might not be for everyone, I suggest you give it a try.
