Huey Newton by St. Vincent

The beginning of this track is very different than the latter part. It starts off with synth like guitar line with St. Vincent throwing random lines out around the music. But this song really takes off with about two minutes left when out of left field St. Vincent breaks into a dual guitar massive rock riff and the band just rides that out until the song ends. It’s a great example of how a particular type of lead-in can really enhance the impact of a sound change later in the song. In the live version, listen to how the crowd reacts when the heavy guitar lead starts up.
