In her latest single ‘Lies’, Saint Genevieve chronicles the search for light in darkness after the end of a toxic relationship. Inspired by great artists, both in paint and in music, Saint Genevieve’s music places her emotions on a melodic canvas; blending dominating vocals with crisp production to gift listeners with an audible artwork.
This movement from light to darkness is represented by the contrast between haunting echoes reminiscent of James Blake, which formed part of Saint Genevieve’s vocals at the beginning of the song, and are matched by equally resonant guitar twangs creating an inescapable sense of anxiety, with the sentiment of relief depicted by the sunset at the finale of the ‘Lies’ official video.
Saint Genevieve does not seek to imitate other artists, and with training that stretches from classical to jazz, she mixes the finest of global music to create her own unique sound. Watch the video for ‘Lies’ below, and follow Saint Genevieve on Facebook for more updates.
