Strange Mercy by St. Vincent, out of the album of the same title, and her best.
I found no tab for it so I decided to make one watching 
this live performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOJyLc9lccY
The guitar in the studio version is heavily loaded with reverb and
other effects so it has this really atmospheric and sparse sound.
Would appreciate if someone could
name the chords in it :)
