St. Lucia: The Night Comes Again Tour/Joywave

When: Sat., Sept. 27, 9 p.m. 2014

St. Lucia is a true world traveler. He originates all the way from South Africa, but he studied for a bit in England and now lives in Brooklyn, though it seems he may have done some time traveling as well. His real name is Jean-Philip Grobler, and he’s managed to perfect his musical sound to the ’80s influences of his childhood well. He captures the pop formula and creates ditties that you swear you’ve heard before, and he makes it fun on his latest release, When The Night. “All Eyes On You” and “Wait for Love” feature strong dance beats, synths and catchy refrains that belong just as much at 80s night as it is oddly modern. “Elevate” and “The Night Comes Again” are so full of nostalgia that they belong in a John Hughes film. Wrought with glittery vocals and glam-rock guitar riffs set to a keyboard background, these tracks feel like instant classics. (Liz Trenholme)
