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, jazz-influenced guitar and poetic vocals.
What Hidden Herd say: With mellow jazz flecks, lo-fi lilts and vibrant electronica hurled into their swirling cauldron of musical elements, ST.MARTiiNS‘ weird and wonderful wonk-pop is an ambitious and instantly intriguing stroke of magic.
