I’m a super huge St. Lucia fan. I’ve kind of always heard about the band because September was quite a hit here in South Africa even before it landed up on 5FM’s Top 40 and was number 1 for a while. I didn’t really know what to expect before I saw them live at Firefly Music Festival earlier on this year. However, when the band took to the stage I knew that it was game over and I was going to love them forever.

They recently performed at the Sony Studios and I experienced a combination of fanlove and insane national pride because the lead singer, Jean-Philip Grobler, is South African. I bumped into him at MGMT’s show at the festival and he even spoke about how he went to St. Albans, an all-boys school located in Pretoria. I just want to add that it’s right here by me. Pretoria FTW.

St. Lucia are currently on tour now and have received an incredible response from their debut album, When The Night. I think we should throw on a few South African tour dates and get them here.
