Saint Saviour - Woman Scorned (Evokateur Remix)

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

 

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.

Groove Armada - I Won't Kneel (Treasure Fingers Epicwave Edit)

Back in October, Groove Armada hit me with a dose of the "oh no, this song makes me feel feelings" medicine when their song, I Won't Kneel, first flew into my ears.

The original song, featuring the icily-nice vocals of SaintSaviour, is one that we won't soon quit. Nope, you can't make me! The only reason I'll turn it off is to switch it over to the just-released Epicwave Edit from Beaston-fave, Treasure Fingers. Jumpy disco beats and twinkling trinket and tid-bits supplement the gorgeous arrangement. If you thought you could still while listening to this mix, I'd beg you to change your tune immediately.  

Get rad with a bonus cut from Groove Armada's upcoming album, Black Light (out March 2 via OM).
