Today’s new music spotlight is on ST.MARTiiNS.
Location: Dundee, Scotland
Line-up: Katie Lynch (vocals), Mark Johnston (guitar/percussion/synths)
About: ST.MARTiiNS are a two-piece band based in Dundee, Scotland. The two have crafted a unique sound over ten years writing together with strong conceptual and stylistic elements. The music itself is laced with dark tones, created by an amalgamation of jazz-influenced guitar and poetic vocals, alongside other notable pop and electronic influences.
What Hidden Herd say: As the curtain falls on a hot and hazy summer, ST.MARTiiNS’ effortless alt-pop is the go-to soundtrack. Why? Sugary new single ‘My Girl’ feels like a lost afternoon in a sun-bleached park thanks to Katie Lynch’s laidback daydream vocals and Mark Johnston’s woozy canyon of jazz guitar. Press play below.
