TUNE St. Lucia - Closer Than This (Viceroy Remix)
St. Lucia, the latest signings to New York's Neon Gold Records, offer up two new remixes of debut EP favourites to promote their first UK tour dates. 'The Old House Is Gone' is reworked by NYC duo The Knocks, while 'Closer Than This' is given a pop tinted sheen by San Francisco producer Viceroy. Based in Brooklyn, vocalist/ producer/multi-instrumentalist St. Lucia began his musical journey in his home country of South Africa, much of his music is inspired by old family photos, ciné film and the exotic environment in which he first began to write. Having stopped off in the UK and settled in New York, St. Lucia works out of a home-studio, taking part in almost every aspect of the recording process.
One of the hottest live acts at this year's SXSW festival, St. Lucia, plays live in the UK for the first time in May, taking in:
Fitzherberts, Brighton (The Great Escpae) - May 10th
Psychosocial, Brighton (The Great Escape) - May 11th
Popshop at CAMP, London - May 17th
Released by: Neon Gold Records
Release date: May 14, 2012
