Hailing from the suburban sprawl between Philadelphia and New York City, alt-rock outfit Saint Slumber (who you may know from their recent EDM cover of “MakeDamnSure” with Adventure Club and Modern Machines) are gearing up for big 2019.
Following the release of their genre-blending EPs YOUTH//1 and YOUTH//2, the talented trio of Joshua Perna, Aaron Brown and Matt Carpenter are ready to give listeners the final installment of their three-part YOUTH// trilogy.
Hitting stores August 16th, YOUTH//3 looks to continue where Saint Slumber left off while also taking their innovative sound to a whole new level as heard on their brand new single “MANTRA” which The Noise is stoked to be premiering today.
Talking about the new dark pop anthem, the band commented: “Choosing the first single for our new record was an important process for us. YOUTH//3 isn’t just a ‘new EP’ for Saint Slumber, it’s the final installment in what we consider to be our debut record: the YOUTH// trilogy. It marks the completion of us finding our voice, finding our sound, and there was no better song to signify that than ‘MANTRA.’”
“‘MANTRA’ is the distillation of every song we’ve ever written,” the band added. “It’s the sound that you can hear us trying to find on our first two records, YOUTH//1 and YOUTH//2. It’s a song about idealization, about placing everything you have on one hope, one dream, one person, and it serves as our thesis statement as a band.”
