"So I started watching films as sort of a way to get back into being human.

Clark's parents divorced when she was three years old, and she moved to Dallas, Texas when she was seven years old with her mother and two older sisters. From her parents' blended families, Clark has eight siblings: four brothers and four sisters.

In retrospect, Clark said, "I think that with music school and art school, or school in any form, there has to be some system of grading and measurement. While all that is good and has its place, at some point you have to learn all you can and then forget everything that you learned in order to actually start making music." While attending Berklee, Clark studied with Professor of Guitar, Lauren Passarelli.

In 2008, after returning to New York from a lengthy tour, Clark began working on her second album.

Her inspiration reportedly came from several films, including Disney movies: "Well, the truth is that I had come back from a pretty long — you know, about a year-and-a-half of touring, and so my brain was sort of all circuit boards that were a little bit fried", Clark said.

Shortly after leaving Berklee, Clark returned home to Texas where she joined The Polyphonic Spree just before their embarking on a European tour.

Clark left The Polyphonic Spree and joined Sufjan Stevens' touring band in 2006, bringing with her a tour EP entitled Paris is Burning.

Entertainment Weekly said the album "plays up the contrasts, [with Clark] letting her church-choir voice linger on lyrics that hint darkly at themes of violence, sex, and general chaos", and branded the album "a uniquely potent cocktail of sounds and moods." It peaked at #90 on the Billboard 200.

Although the album spawned no singles (except in the UK where "Actor Out Of Work" was issued as a 7" vinyl single), music videos for "Marrow" and "Actor Out of Work" were released, and aired on several music channels.

In 2008, Clark was nominated for three PLUG Independent Music Awards: New Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.

On March 6, 2008, she won the PLUG Female Artist of the Year award.

Additionally, her track "The Strangers" was sampled by Kid Cudi on the song "MANIAC" for his 2010 album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. In 2015, she performed with Wire in Chicago, as part of the band's Drill Festival.
