Song of the Week: St. Lucia’s “Elevate”


St. LuciaElevate – Single
Columbia Records / Neon Gold

A quick Google search of “St. Lucia” will offer you some terrific vacation spots for the small Caribbean Island that is part of the Lesser Antilles. Although not a St. Lucia native, the Johannesburg born songwriter Jean-Philip Grobler draws his inspiration from childhood vacations to the beautiful tropical island. Grobler’s St. Lucia has taken off very rapidly, with a slot at Lollapalooza on Saturday August 3rd (as well as an aftershow slot at the Lincoln Hall), and a new album coming out October 8th with the support of Columbia Records.

There’s no better way to try and describe St. Lucia’s music than by listening to the latest single, “Elevate.” With a tremendous amount of 80s pop influence, St. Lucia refines the once comical sound into a dance inducing popular sound that is quickly coming back. Grobler’s soaring vocals show off his remarkable range and provide a catchy melody from start to finish.

With a history of starting the careers of artists such as Passion Pit and Ellie Goulding, St. Lucia has set themselves up very well by choosing Neon Gold to help them release their debut album.
