New Music Heaven : St. Lucia

September 4, 2018

Brooklyn indie-pop group St. Lucia will release their forthcoming third album Hyperion on Friday, September 21 via Columbia Records. The 11-track album features “A Brighter Love,” “Paradise Is Waiting” and the newly-released lead single “Walking Away.” 

Frontman Jean-Philip Grobler says of the song: “Damn, ‘Walking Away’ has been in the works for a really long time. I wrote it with Nicky [Paul] and Ross [Clark] from the band before we even started recording our last album Matter, and we actually played it a handful of times on our last tour almost 3 years ago. The song came together super quickly and what you hear in this final version is about 60% the original demo-- we just had to replace the Daft Punk loop we wrote on top of with something else, so that took about 4 years. And here it is, our funky beast.”

"Walking Away" is this week's featured New Music Heaven track, which means when you hear us play it, you can text HOT or NOT to 44624 to let us know what you think!
