St. Lucia's Sophomore Album 'Matter'
See the tracklist and hear new song "Physical."

From single “Dancing On Glass” to buzz tracks “Physical” and “Love Somebody,” it’s very clear that Jean-Philip Grobler, aka St. Lucia, reached deep into his well of ’80s appreciation for sophomore LP Matter (out January 29). Another log for the scorching, synthy fire is new track “Help Me Run Away,” which just became available today for download on iTunes.

If you always wondered what it would have been like if a-ha, Howard Jones and Kim Wilde got into a room sometime circa 1985 and jammed together, this track is probably the closest thing you’ll get to an answer.
