Song of the Day: Trip – Saint Joshua

Acclaimed musician SAINT JOSHUA completes his trilogy of EP releases with his highly anticipated ‘EP3’. The release of the 4-track opus includes the recently revealed ‘Even If We Don’t’, alongside lead single ‘Trip’ and a carefully crafted selection of 2 other previously unreleased tracks, ‘Love Game’ and ‘Where Did It All Go Wrong’, that entwine together to take us on a journey of self-reflection and emotion surrounding the world of relationships, dating and self.

Stand out record ‘Trip’ takes on an upbeat, feel-good rhythm that breathes hope, acceptance and freedom into the emotional whirlwind of a journey. The track stands for those post break up moments. The moments of navigating love in a fun and free manner when you can finally take control again and you no longer carry the burden of heartache and heartbreak, or in some instances use it to help get over the heartache and heartbreak.

Hotly tipped as ‘one-to-watch’ and gaining a wealth of national and international support, South-Londoner Saint Joshua continues to emerge and astound with the delivery of consistently captivating music. Since the release of ‘EP2’ in May, he has garnered over 2 million streams, 200,000 monthly Spotify listeners, ‘Track Of The Week’ at both BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra and been selected as a beneficiary for PPL Momentum funding by PRS Foundation. Perhaps such positive reactions have quietly helped to give him the confidence to delve further into the talent and soul that lies within him, as on ‘EP3’ we’re invited to share the most vulnerable and intimate side of Saint Joshua that we’ve seen so far. Unravelling emotion surrounding relationships, and the often-impossible world of dating, Saint Joshua explores a beautiful account of his own struggles and lessons that are extraordinarily poignant and relatable.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Frank Ocean, Solange, and R&B hit-maker D’Angelo, Saint Joshua has formed a cinematic sound that’s made up from a cocktail of genres. Teamed with honest vulnerability, his skilled artistry and stirring penmanship, it is the unique combination of everything he embodies that makes him such a remarkable talent and is seeing Saint Joshua grow at every turn. It is why his music resonates with those it reaches, and also why he is seeing a continuous build in support from the world’s largest platforms, including the likes of BBC 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM, 1883 Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, Last Bus Magazine, Atwood Magazine, Capital Xtra, Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Apple Music, Heart Radio, and many more.
Having already performed at the likes of Soho House, alongside headlining at the BBC’s Introducing Stage at Latitude Festival, Saint Joshua makes his debut headline show on February 1st at The Social, with tickets on sale now from http://gigsandtours.com/
