The Brooklyn-based and former Johannesberg-born and raised Jean-Philip Grobler aka St. Lucia has been prepping his debut album for Neon Gold and Columbia Records for quite some time with executive producer James Iha.
If you need to hear something that proves that the time has been well spent, listen to his new single "September." The new single is a slowly creeping piece of atmosphere electronic pop that builds and builds upon layers of new wave percussion, synths with Grobler's vocals leading the way. It's just a taste of what's to come.
The new single will be released September 25, 2012. The album will see light early next year.
