St. Lucia Matter (Columbia)

The one-time jingle writer hiding inside St. Lucia’s Jean Philip-Grobler is always trying to get out, and the band’s second album, Matter, is at its mercy. The ’80s synth-dance of St. Lucia’s debut, When The Night, is at the core of its creations, the search for the perfect hook lost in a jungle of choking tracks. Philip-Grobler definitely has pop chops which he almost manages on the lighthearted “Home” and the lilting “Winds Of Change.”

Watch the official video for “Dancing On Glass.”
