St. Lucia's (aka Jean-Philip Grobler) second album continues his love of 80s inflected pop. "Matter" is the much anticipated follow-up to St. Lucia s breakthrough debut album, 'When The Night'. The new album is produced by Chris Zane (Passion Pit, The Walkmen), and is a departure for principal songwriter and bandleader Jean-Philip Grobler, who takes a more direct, essential approach. In his words, "If the last album sounded like the tropics, this album is the desert". St. Lucia's version of the desert is still an inviting place, though, one inspired by blending Grobler's fearless embrace of 80's pop, R&B, and alternative rock influences into an instantly captivating concoction.
