Saint Clair shares new single ‘Amnesiac’ via Consequence of Sound5 October 2017
Rising talent Saint Clair has recently shared ‘Amnesiac’ which premiered via Consequence of Sound upon its release. This is the first single to emerge from her forthcoming EP ‘D2’ due out in late November via her own Dearly Beloved imprint.
This follows the release of Saint Clair’s debut EP ‘D1’ earlier this year, which drew praise from NME, DIY and Line of Best Fit and saw her support Laura Marling at her sold-out Roundhouse dates. With her next London show booked for Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on October 9, Saint Clair recently performed in London as part of Sofar Sounds & Amnesty International’s global ‘Give A Home’ event, which also saw the likes of Wild Beasts, Jessie Ware and Marika Hackman perform in venues around the UK.
Buoyed along by appositely languid, throbbing production from New York’s Rahm (signed to Terrible Records, also home to Blood Orange, Solange, Empress Of), new track ‘Amnesiac’ finds Saint Clair exploring a sub-conscious world which seems to offer limitless possibilities. Speaking about the track, she says; “‘Amnesiac’ is about desperately anticipating sleep in order to escape reality and live in your dreams instead; being transported to a place where everything is untouched and reimagined. And Rahm captured this world perfectly through his dreamy production.”
