St. Lucia – Rocket On My Feet

In the current musical climate, itโ€™s rather unusual for an act to wait four years before releasing new material. But in my opinion, choosing quality over quantity is always a good idea. And thatโ€™s exactly what husband-and-wife duo Jean-Philip Grobler (born in South Africa) and Patti Beranek (from Germany) have done.

Rocket On My Feet is Brooklyn-based St. Luciaโ€™s first single since 2018; their debut on new label home Nettwerk Records. The track starts with a synth-driven beat before launching an undeniably groovy crescendo of punchy drums, airy vocals, and slick guitar melodies. With its shimmery pop grooves, it sounds like a disco-fied version of Killing Jokeโ€™s Love Like Blood.

โ€œIn a way, this is my personal rebellion against the darkness of the world,โ€ states Jean-Philip. โ€œItโ€™s easy to feel depressed these days, so Iโ€™m trying to bring something joyous to the world. I was sick of seeing shit on the Internet, and I just wanted to feel good. Thatโ€™s what being human is about. We have to feel alive, no matter what is happening around us.โ€
