Musician Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia) takes the inspirations of his various ports of call, South Africa, London, New York City, and combines them into atmospheric electro-pop that balances pure danceability with the structure of his classical musical training.
Recognizing that vein of bubbly abandonment, Scotland’s CHVRCHES play up the sunnier side of Grobler’s music with a remix of the St. Lucia EP standout “Before The Dive”. Though not drastically different from the original, the new rendition is still four minutes of sonic bliss, overflowing with flourishes of honey-dipped glitchy-ness. Listen in below.
Don’t forget: St. Lucia will appear at our CoSigns day party during SXSW, alongside Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving, The Thermals, Mac DeMarco, and more. RSVP now.
