St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein attend the Opening Ceremony show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 at  on Feb. 9, 2014 in Brooklyn, N.Y. 

Part of the rollout for St. Vincent’s forthcoming new album has included the creation of her own “interview kit”—a hyper-stylized series of clips in which she participates in mock interviews while models in fetish gear stand with her around a green screen.

Over the last few days, she’s posted a handful of the clips to her Instagram, which consist entirely of Annie Clark giving answers to a nonexistent interviewer that are interjected with bizarre deadpan prompts. According to a recent New Yorker profile in which she explained the idea herself, the songwriter worked with her friend Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein to script the videos, which you can watch below for yourself as she eats chips loudly while a crew wearing BDSM gear looks on, she makes unconvincing small talk, avoids giving advice to young musicians and answers yet another dumb question about playing in heels.
