St. Lucia “Love You Better”

New York duo, St. Lucia just released their first new music since 2022’s Utopia. “Love You Better” is a mid-tempo synth pop jam where frontman Jean-Philip Grobler gets to show off his austere vocal range. He said “we wrote [it] on a writing trip to Maderas Village in Nicaragua a few years ago with Jakob Bjørn-Hansen aka Bearson. It was the most incredible place, on the beach and in the jungle, and every night we’d go to bed to the sound of crickets and howler monkeys. One morning I woke up with the chorus of ‘Love You Better’ in my head, it came to me in a dream, and we spent the day finishing the rest of the song. Not long after, we recorded the song with the St. Lucia live band in the studio all playing together, and what you hear in the final version is basically that live recording with a few additions.”
