Born and raised in the Mojave Desert, Elizabeth Ann Clark, a filmmaker and classically trained pianist began composing melodies which eventually evolved into electronic dance songs. Recording, writing and performing under the moniker of VIRGO, Clark’s sound has been compared by some to the likes of Grimes, Little Dragon, CHVRCHES and others – and as you’ll hear on Clark’s latest single “II,” it’s a fair comparison, although VIRGO’s sound is much more hypnotic and atmospheric while the synths and drum programming manage to evoke something deeply ominous and troubled just underneath the surface. 

Sonically, the production creates a compelling sense of tension as Clark sings ‘You’re in head, not in my heart" with a breathy coo. And yet, the song is very danceable.
