“A synth-pop symphony that deals in dreamy

dance-floor melodrama and lush, sparkling textures.”

SPIN, on “Too Close”


Brooklyn-based synth-pop outfit St. Lucia has unveiled a brand new song from their forthcoming full-length debutWhen The Night.  The song’s intense electronics highlight the more experimental/dance tendencies of the band, previously revealed in songs like 2012’s “September.” When The Night is availableOctober 8 via Neon Gold/Columbia.


This week, St. Lucia plays two special, full-album preview shows—the first of which was last night at The Echo in Los Angeles, followed by San Francisco’s Rickshaw tomorrow, September 12. Both shows sold out in a matter of hours. In addition, St. Lucia will join Two Door Cinema Club on tour this fall, with dates kicking off October 2 at Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre and continuing through mid-November (see itinerary below).


St. Lucia is featured in the latest iteration of Spotify’s “Emerge” program. The program highlights ten developing artists and tracks their Spotify streams and social media interactions, crowning a “winner” at the end of a 6-week period. Previous winners include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Atlas Genius and Bastille.


Produced by the band’s own Jean-Philip Grobler, When The Night expands upon St. Lucia’s unique brand of dreamy, nostalgic pop, with additional production and mixing from Chris Zane (Passion Pit), Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters) and Andy Baldwin. St. Lucia has previously released two EPs—2012’s September EP and self-titled EP.
