After releasing two critically-lauded EPs, St. Lucia finally capitalize on the tidal wave of hype by dropping debut album When The Night on October 8 (Neon Gold/Columbia Records). Still in the dark about 2013′s best purveyor of dream-pop? Well, St. Lucia is actually a one-man band fronted by South African-born, Brooklyn-based Jean-Philip Grobler.
He has opened for acts like Ellie Goulding — developing a fervent fanbase with multi-layered synth anthems that evoke sun-dappled afternoons and summer holidays. If you need another reason to climb on board Jean-Philip’s already crowded bandwagon, spend five minutes with the typically dense and gorgeous “Elevate”. Listen after the jump.
