When introduced back last year Saint Cole were firmly a duo and although Curt still does collaborate from time to time, Saint Cole is now very much driven by Nic.

From the eleven track plus two remixes LP, the fourth – Message Intercept is a track destined for the Clubs over the summer with its spiky synth and mesmeric floating vocal.

Word is around that there are a couple more albums in the wings for imminent release, with a less moody interface.

Diverse Intentions LP – Saint Cole is available on iTunes.*

Saint Cole

In the early stages of their development, regular readers will recall their introduction in May, since when the sound has become more defined as a regular stream of tracks keep surfacing. The easy flowing constructs are darkened by an underbelly of bassy pulses, from which the keys spring around the room in tangents of shimmering shards and a mid-section which lays with mildly distorted instrumentation and sanded vocal, resulting in the sounds drifting past the ears – always just out of reach as though nothing more than a figment of the imagination. It is this sense of  ghostly apparition which gives the resulting music its intense impact.

Saint Cole have numerous plans afoot, including finalisation of a visual feast of anonymity for live performance along with more one-off and full releases in the coming months. Having spent considerable time speaking to Nic over the past few months, I have little doubt other changes will be along the way to surprise and delight.

This is an out-fit to get to know in the early stages of their development as they have the potential to travel far with their compositions, which offer much to the audience, requiring only capacious amounts of time to allow the music to fully immerse the brain in the psychedelic flow.
