Meet Saint Saviour.
The London-bred vocalist is perhaps best known for lending her pipes to Groove Armada, as well as a bunch of other acts including The RGBs, The Slips, and Joe & Will Ask.
Now the singer will be taking a stab at going it solo with the release of her debut single, “Woman Scorned.”
Like a cross between a classically trained vocalist and an indie rocker begging to be unleashed, Saint Saviour delivers with a wild energy on her rollicking, rock-tinged debut.
The comparisons that can be drawn to other vocalists are many-numbered (and all valid): From Kate Bush to Antony Hegarty to Liza Minnelli to Martha Wainwright to Beth Ditto to a touch of fellow saint, St. Vincent. Weird warblers unite!
But wait–there’s more!
As a MuuMuse Excluusive, check out Saint Saviour’s stunning take on the Depeche Mode classic, “Enjoy The Silence”–both of which are available for both stream and download.
Listen below to hear Saint Saviour’s soaring rendition of the original, which is reverent enough to be deemed a proper church hymn. Talk about a woman after my own heart!
The singer will be performing her first ever live show in London at Bush Hall on October 23, and tickets are currently on sale now.
“Woman Scorned” will be released both digitally and as a limited edition 100-press 7″ vinyl on October 11.
