St. Lucia premiered their much-anticipated debut album When The Night with an exclusive showcase at the Sonos Studio in Los Angeles last week. The high-energy set was preceded by a Q&A session with frontman Jean-Philip Grobler, which set the evening’s relaxed, vaguely exotic tone.
The band then wowed with superb renditions of new tracks and old favorites alike. Highlights included tropical-pop stormer “September”, moody buzz track “Too Close” and effervescent single “Elevate”. Another treat was “Closer Than This”, which has been on high rotation at Idolator HQ since featuring on St. Lucia’s first EP. Watch their brilliant performance up top.
