The Saint-Léon Story
Written by close friend and video director Pascal Lubois:
Following a prolific first year in 2018 that saw the release of three singles and their debut live performances featuring a full A/V show across Europe, transcontinental pop outsiders Saint-Léon maintain the momentum unveiling their heartbreaking new single ‘Rumours from the Floor’, and the announcement of their first ever Australian show in Sydney, Saturday 30 March at 107 Projects, Redfern.
Accompanied by a sepia industrial music video featuring live footage from their first show in London, ‘Rumours from the Floor’ was written and recorded in the south of France - a meditation on loss after a rupturing fork in the road for singer Ryan Nicolussi and producer Alister Hill that only bound them tighter over their decade-long friendship.
Harnessing a searching euphoria that reaches between Cocteau Twins’ dreamology and Sia’s powerhouse pop masterpiece ‘Chandelier’, ‘Rumours from the Floor’ is a study in the sound of talking to yourself, feeling it all slip, life closing in, and knowing that despite an irrevocable change, it is inevitable that we must carry on.
