BUZZING ARTIST MORGAN SAINT RELEASES DEBUT EP 17 HERO OCTOBER 13
(October 13, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) It feels like magic. One listen to Morgan Saint’s warm delivery, dreamy instrumentation, and lush lyrical poetry, and you’re somewhere else. Opening up that world, the New York songstress releases her debut EP, 17 Hero [Epic Records], today. It’s available HERE.
Since its release two months ago, “You” has already cracked 1.2M streams and counting in addition to breaking in a big way down under on Australia’s Triple J—famous for launching Lorde. Meanwhile, the music video made its debut on Pigeons and Planes who raved, “Saint presents the song’s honest lyrics with a memorable vocal performance that very much lives up to the ‘moody pop’ description she gives her music.” Widespread acclaim continues to pour in from tastemakers such as TIME, Just Jared, Zane Lowe, Office Magazine, Fashion Unfiltered, and more.
With each track penned by Saint, 17 Hero stirs majestic alternative and intimate indie into an artistic and anthemic pop pastiche. The shimmering eighties synths and fingersnaps of “Just Friends” bristle as she coyly asks, “Why don’t we makeout?” Elsewhere, “For God’s Sake” builds from a hushed verse into a soaring refrain, and the buzzing intro of “New Regime” hinges on buzzing tones and a handclap as she carries an angelic refrain to the heavens and back. It’s “Moody Pop,” as she so eloquently describes. Check out the full tracklisting below.
On October 12, she teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar to exclusively unveil the music video for the next single “Glass House.” Be sure to check it out.
It’s shaping up to be a breakthrough fall for the artist. She recently wrapped up dates on the road with Goldfrapp and Banks as well as a standout performance at Baby’s All Right with Charlotte Cardin in Brooklyn. In November, she takes the stage at Live At The Vineyard before performing in major markets on both coasts. Check out the full itinerary below.
Meet pop’s new heroine now.
Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint connected to music during her formative years, learning piano and starting to write songs as soon as she possibly could. A true ingenue, she taught herself how to play guitar and began building a world of her own. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she will release 17 Hero EP this fall 2017.
