Listen Up - St. Lucia
You know those bands that enter a great genre and end up sounding like everyone else in it? Well, St. Lucia isn’t one of them, so prepare yourself.
This group of musicians lead by Jean-Philip Grobler, originally from Johannesburg, South Africa but now residing in New York City, is reinventing the electronic pop scene by taking hints of alt. rock and synth pop and throwing in some seriously haunting vocals. The sound is unlike any other we’ve heard.
St. Lucia grew up in South Africa and eventually moved to England to study music. Taking the colloquial rhythms of Johannesburg and the knack for pop he acquired while exploring new music, St. Lucia has created an incredibly unique debut record. Prepare to hear passionate chants when you’re dancing to the recently released and self-titled St. Lucia – EP.
The group is being classified as Alternative but we think you’ll agree they encompass the attitude of Pop, Electronic, and Rock as well.
Having recently opened up for Ellie Goulding, as well as Charlie XCX and a number of other artists, St. Lucia is introducing his bi-worldly and internationally influenced sound all over the country and around the world.
