Oooh this is really smooth. And it's even nicer to see Saint Saviour, whom we first lauded nearly a year ago to the day when she jumped on board with Groove Armada for the especially spectacular track of theirs, I Won't Kneel. Now that she's taking her distinctive vocals on a solo ride, with single Woman Scorned, it's time to pay closer attention to what makes her Beaston worthy and approved.
Saint Saviour released her first single on October 11 after having spent the last year recording and touring the world with GA, during which Andy Cato described her as "the performer of her generation". Already compared to everyone from Mariah Callas and Antony Hegarty to Karen O and Patti Smith, the singer is writing music that few could reasonably be expected to deliver, but as a former vocal coach and sought after session singer who practiced 10 hours a day at her piano, Saint Saviour is keen to push the limits, both technically and physically.
Woman Scorned covers 3 octaves in its 4 minutes and DUH, I love it. Hear it over at her 'Space, and in the meantime...
...grab the super sultry Evokateur mix of the single. It's a dandy.
