Our featured artist profiles this week are…

SAINT BARAE
Gold Coast
Pop, indie

Equal parts colourful and chaotic, Saint Barae is the quintessential DIY pop artist Australia has been waiting for. At just 22 this eccentric songwriter is back from a three year hiatus with a fresh sound that captures the emotional thrill and wildness of being young and reckless, packaged in a blend of synthwave and a flashy 80’s pop aesthetic that draws inspiration from his hometown’s own nightlife scene.

In this context, comeback single “Remains” is the anthem of a generation isolated by an ever-changing social landscape, striking a chord with anyone who has ever been ‘ghosted’ or simply felt abandoned by their loved ones and left staring blankly into their phone screens.

Combining influences from contemporaries by the likes of Troye Sivan and Years and Years, this slice of pop perfection plans on staying with you long after the final pulsating synth has faded away, showcasing just how effective this young artist is at combining lush soundscapes with haunting, introspective lyrics.
